Abstract:

The Installation Restoration program IRP has identified several sites with contaminated soil and groundwater. This subsurface contamination is the result of fuels, cleaning solvents, and degreasers entering the subsurface environment from accidental spills, leaking storage tanks, and past disposal practices. HQ AFESCRDVW is conducting research aimed at developing treatment strategies for groundwater cleanup, and studying the fate and transport of contaminants in subsurface systems. Many of the contaminants of concern are volatile by nature, and a knowledge of the contaminants of concern are volatile by nature, and a knowledge of their air-water distribution and aqueous solubility is needed to assess the compounds treatability and to support the basic laboratory studies. The objectives of this research were to develop Henrys law constants and aqueous solubilities as a function of temperature, for a variety of organic compounds of Air Force concern. Secondary objectives were to determine what effect mixed organics, in a aqueous solution, exhibit on individual Henrys law constants and evaluate various methods used to predict Henrys law constants. This report documents experimentally determined values of Henrys law constants and aqueous solubility for 51 compounds of Air Force concern. The report is presented in three volumes. Volume I contains the technical discussion and tabulated values of Henrys law constants and aqueous solubilities. Volume II and III contain all the raw data and the fortran source code for an interactive program used to predict the chemical parameters.
