Abstract
Alkali metal polyethylene glycolate complexes (APEGs) are being investigated as reagents for the in-situ decontamination of soils containing PCBs and other haloorganics in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Industrial Environmental Research Laboratory, Cincinnati, Ohio. APEG reagents can be formulated with either an alkali metal or hydroxide and the corresponding polyglycol or polyglycol monoalkyl ethers. The work examines the effect of APEG concentration and dilution in water and organic solvent on the dehalogenation of Aroclors 1242 and 1260 with potential application for the in-situ destruction of PCBs in soils.
