Abstract : Characterization of six gasolines and two diesel fuels and their water-soluble fractions (WSF's) by gas chromatography was undertaken to ascertain the types of compounds which may appear in ground water as a result of gasoline contamination. In addition, the diffusion constants for gasoline components into water were estimated thus enabling prediction of the kinetics of dissolution. A bibliography of the open literature on gasoline characterization and toxicity has been included.
