Self-cleaning potential of aquifers contaminated with explosive-typical compounds

Object of research are the natural sorption and reduction mechanisms of explosive-typical compounds in groundwater aquifers in Torgau/Elsnig. The results allow the assumption that complex contamination slows reduction of some explosive-typical compounds and that polar compounds display a lower capacity for self-reduction than non-polar compounds regardless solar irradiation.
