    Abstract

    The fate of 16 different organics typical for creosote was studied under aerobic conditions in a large intact fractured clay column experiment. Some of the organics (benzene, toluene, o-xylene, phenol, and o-cresol) were transported at the same rate as bromide through the fractured clay, whereas naphthalene, quinoline, and 2,4-dimethylphenol were retarded significantly. The breakthrough curves indicated that phenol and o-cresol were degraded faster than benzene and toluene whereas o-xylene seemed to persist within the experimental period. A simple transport model was applied to some of the data. -from Authors
