- ... The biodegradation of 13C-labeled 2,4-dichlorophenol (DCP labeled at the C-2 and C-6 positions), in the presence and absence of natural organic matter (NOM), by the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium, was examined using 13C-nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Using this method permitted the chemistry occurring at or near the labeled site to be followed. The formation of alkyl ethers and al ...

- ... This study investigated the interactions between organic chemicals and components of the soil matrix and their effects on subsequent microbial mineralization kinetics. Five 14C-labeled chemicals (anionic, cationic, and nonionic surfactants) were aseptically sorbed to montmorillonite, kaolinite, illite, sand, humic acids, and fulvic acids. Small amounts of these sorbed chemicals were dosed to an ac ...
