Title

Role of Dispersing Medium on the Disposition of 2,3,7,8-TCDD in Soil

Abstract

The contamination with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and related compounds of many sites in Missouri is without doubt the single most publicized environmental issue in the state. The detection of TCDD residues in fish and sediment samples downstream from contaminated sites in Missouri indicates migration of the compound from these sites, necessitating a closer examination of migration modes of TCDD from soil into the aquatic environment. The role of the dispersing medium on the disposition of TCDD in soil is being studied in our laboratory. The objective of these studies is to monitor the effect of carrier medium on the migration and loss of TCDD in selected soil types representative of contaminated soil sites.
