Abstract : The U.S. Army Medical Bloengineering Research and Development Laboratory has the responsibility of developing environmental standards for pollutants that contaminate the environment at Army installations. Two such pollutants at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal are dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) and diisopropylmethylphosphonate (DIMP). The objectives of this research are to conduct laboratory experiments that will predict the photochemical and biological transformations of DCPD and DIMP in the soils and waters of Rocky Mountain Arsenal and will provide a semiquantitative evaluation of decomposition rates of and products resulting from DCPD and DIMP.
