Fate of MTBE and DCPD Compounds Relative to BTEX in Gasoline-Contaminated Aquifers
The aim of this communication is to provide preliminary results on MTBE monitoring, and at the same time to propose some new tracers of gasoline pollution in groundwater. An overview is presented on benzene-toluene-ethylbenzene-xylene (BTEX), methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE), and dicyclopentadienes (DCPD) contents in gasoline formulations. Their specific fate in gasoline-contaminated aquifers are consistent with their physical-chemical properties.
