Contents Notes
Explored the potential for increased deposition of the metal manganese along roads from use of methylcyclopentadienyl manganese tricarbonyl (MMT) as a motor vehicle fuel additive. While manganese was not found at elevated concentrations in near-road surface soils, copper was. Although copper data is presented in the paper, the copper results were not discussed. The copper data presented in the paper appears to show increased copper concentrations for soils near roads with higher average daily traffic, as well as an increased copper concentration for samples closer to the road (samples at 1 and 40 meters from highway).
