The purpose of this book is to present the latest knowledge regarding the environmental chemistry and fate of explosive and propellant compounds. This book is largely based on a symposium organized for the 22-25 March 2009 American Chemical Society meetings entitled, "Environmental Distribution, Degradation, and Mobility of Explosive and Propellant Compounds", held in Salt Lake City, UT. The purpose of this symposium was to bring together an international body of government and academic experts to share information regarding the environmental fate of these contaminants, with an emphasis on assessing and/or supporting the environmental sustainability of military training activities. This book is designed to address three main topics with respect to explosive and propellant compounds: (i) new and summary chemistry information regarding the sorption, degradation (abiotic and biotic), mobility, and overall environmental fate of these compounds in soil; (ii) techniques for statistically reliable detection and field-deployable remote sensing of munition constituents, and (iii) technologies for targeted remediation of MC-contaminated soils and sediments.
