Abstract

A toxicity based approach to chemical characterization has been used to identify select toxicants in an aqueous leachate of creosote. Gas chromatographic-mass spectral analysis of toxic fractions of the leachate identified pentachlorophenol and a mixture of low molecular weight heterocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons as suspect toxicants from among the hundreds of chemicals found in the leachate.
