Abstract: Fenton's reaction-based chemical oxidation is in principle a method that can be utilized for all organic fuel residues thus making it a potential all-purpose, multi-contaminant, in situ application for cases in which storage and distribution of different types of fuels have resulted in contamination of soil or groundwater. Since peroxide breakdown reactions are also expected to lead to a physical transport of the target compound, this secondary physical removal, or rebound concentrations related to it, is prone to be affected by the chemical properties of the target compound. Also, since soil conditions are seldom optimal for Fenton's reaction, the balance between chemical oxidation and transport may vary. In this study, it was found that, with a high enough hydrogen peroxide concentration (5 M), methyl tert-butyl ether-spiked groundwater could be treated even under suboptimal conditions for chemical mineralization. In these cases, volatilization was not only contributing to the total removal but also leading to rebound effects similar to those associated with air sparging techniques. Likewise for diesel, temporal transport from soil to the aqueous phase was found to lead to false positives that outweighed the actual remediation effect through chemical mineralization.
