Solvent-extractable TNT transformation products have been identified in explosive-contaminated soils. Soils from U.S. Army installations were extracted with a variety of solvents acetonitrile, methanol, acetone and methylene chloride and the extracts were analyzed by RP-HPLC-UV or GCMS, or both. The TNT transformation products TNB, TNBA, 2-amino-4,6-DNT and 4-amino-2, 6-DNT were generally found in concert with TNT. In addition, dinitroaniline, a reduction product of TNB, was also identified in several soils. Degradation, Pollution, Transformation products, Explosives, Soils, TNT.
