||Neutral and base-catalyzed hydrolyses of isopropyl bromide, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, and ethylene dibromide were studied in pure water and in barely saturated subsurface sediment at 25-60 deg C. No significant differences in the kinetics or products were observed in the sediment pores compared to those in water at the same pH, indicating that the effects of ionic strength, surface catalysis, and adsorption are unimportant for the low-carbon sediment studied. Thus, kinetic and product data for haloalkanes obtained in pure water are applicable to such groundwater systems. (Copyright (c) American Chemical Society 1988.)
