Title: Oxidative remediation of 4-methylcyclohexanemethanol (MCHM) and propylene glycol phenyl ether (PPh). Evidence of contaminant repair reaction pathways

Abstract

Rate constants and reaction efficiencies were determined for HO˙-mediated reactions for 4-methylcyclohexanemethanol and propylene glycol phenyl ether to simulate contaminant remediation in surface waters.
