Abstract

With Compound Specific Isotope Analysis the relative abundance of the heavy and light isotopes of a given element can be determined for a given compound. The possibilities and limitations of the application of isotope fractionation data to assess organic pollutant behavior in natural and engineered systems were presented using practical examples including chlorinated solvents, gasoline components (BTEX), MTBE, and nitroaromatic explosives. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 230th ACS National Meeting (Washington, DC 8/28/2005-9/1/2005).
