Information is presented for quantitative evaluation of soil treatment potential for 56 hazardous chemicals. The chemicals were organized into four categories: PAH, pesticides, chlorinated hydrocarbons, and miscellaneous chemicals. Treatability studies were conducted to determine: degradation rates, phase partition coefficients, and transformation characteristics. Results of soil fate/transport predictions of two mathematical models were compared with laboratory and literature results to evaluate ability of models to predict behavior of selected chemicals. Experimental approach used was designed to characterize degradation, immobilization, and transformation potentials for the hazardous substances. Results indicated that significance of volatilization and abiotic-loss processes in influencing 'apparent loss rates' of substances depended on class of substance. The processes were insignificant for majority of PAHs; biodegradation appears to be major process for PAH loss. Abiotic loss may also be important process for certain pesticides.
