  • This study demonstrates that using {sup 14}C-labeled radiochemicals can cause potential experimental artifacts and error in studies of the behavior of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethylene (PCE). Results indicated that the volatilization rates of {sup 14}C-labeled TCE and PCE (analyzed by {sup 14}C radioactivity) were much lower than those of unlabeled TCE and PCE (analyzed by GC). These observations are attributed to (1) the presence of… CONTINUE READING
