Title Remediating RDX-Contaminated Ground Water with Permanganate: Laboratory Investigations for the Pantex Perched Aquifer
Creator Adam, M. L. Comfort, Steven Morley, Matthew C. Snow, Daniel D
Description Ground water beneath the U.S. Department of Energy Pantex Plant is contaminated with the high explosive RDX (hexahydro-1,3,5- trinitro-1,3,5 triazine). The USDOE Innovative Treatment and Remediation Demonstration (ITRD) program identified in situ oxidation by permanganate as a technology fit for further investigation. We evaluated the efficacy of KMnO4 to transform and mineralize RDX by determining degradation kinetics and carbon mass balances using 14C-RDX. Aqueous RDX solutions (2–5 mg...
