Contents Notes
"This research program was conducted to determine the capability of biological treatment and activated carbon adsorption to remove chemical carcinogens and other hazardous organic compounds from water and wastewater. All of the 11 compounds tested exhibited some degree of biological degradation. Carbon adsorption was also effective in removing the compounds from aqueous solution. Analytical methods were adapted to analyze the very insoluble polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons that tenaciously adsorbed on the glass surfaces of sample bottles and analytical glassware."
