Abstract : 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. During October, analytical methods were developed to determine concurrently methylphonate (MP) and isopropylmethylphosphonate (IMP) in the presence of DIMP. The photochemistry og DCPD in natural waters was investigated, and MICROBIAL studies of 14C-labeled DCPD and DIMP were initiated.
