A technique has been developed to predict the fixed-bed removal of known SOCs in background mixtures of unknown composition. In addition, this technique was used to relate the removal of important SOCs to nonspecific measures of contamination such as total organic halogen (TOX). In this work, ideal adsorbed solution theory (IAST) was shown to predict the multicomponent isotherm of a six component mixture of volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) which are regarded as toxic groundwater contaminants. In addition, a method of applying IAST to predict known component behavior in a groundwater matrix of unknown composition was verified. (Copyright (c) AWNA Annual conference, 1984.)
