The new methods of persulfate activation use chelated metals, such as iron (II) ethylenediamine tetraacetic acid [Fe+2(EDTA)], hydrogen peroxide addition or alkaline conditions by addition of base.

Many studies have examined the differences in bacterial numbers, composition, and activity between groundwater and sediment samples.

  Len1, in his book "Small-Scale Synthesis of Laboratory Reagents," shows how he converted chloroform to carbon tetrachloride in near quantitative yield using free radical chlorination. This post will document my efforts to do the same using a scaled down version of Len's method. Len used a charge of g of chloroform and a 1kW mercury vapor lamp. The carbon tetrachloride levels in blood declined with a half-life of 4 to 5 h during the first 24 h after oral administration of ml carbon tetrachloride/kg body weight (Larson & Plaa, ) or 2 ml ( mCi) [14 C]carbon tetrachloride/kg body weight (Marchand et al., ).
