The occurrence of organic chemicals in soil and groundwater has become an issue of great interest and import. Concomitantly, research on the transport and fate of organic contaminants in subsurface environments has expanded greatly in recent years. However, the behavior of 'complex mixtures' is beginning to receive increased attention. Examples of pertinent problems involving complex mixtures include the transport of oxygenated gasoline in the subsurface, the dissolution of diesel fuel and coal-tar, and the use of chemical agents such as surfactants or solvents to enhance the removal of contaminants by pump-and-treat remediation. A discussion of these few selected examples will serve to highlight some of the issues associated with complex mixtures, with a focus on potential groundwater contamination and remediation.
