Preface to Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference PDF


The proliferation of research publications and continuing public awareness dealing with the fate, transport, and remediation of hazardous substances in the environment has stimulated this fourth edition of the Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference.

Since the publication of the third edition, additional data have been critically reviewed.

New or additional data included in this edition are bioconcentration factors, aquatic mammalian toxicity values, degradation rates, corresponding half-lives in various environmental compartments, ionization potentials, the aqueous solubility of miscellaneous compounds.

Henry’s law constants, biological, chemical, and theoretical oxygen demand values for various organic compounds. (Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference by John H. Montgomery)

Five additional tables have been added: Test Method Number Index, Dielectric Values of Earth Materials and Fluids, Lowest Odor Threshold Concentrations of Organic Compounds in Water, and Lowest Threshold Concentrations of Organic Compounds in Water.

In many instances, investigation of sites contaminated by hazardous substances requires knowledge of the origin and source of the release(s). (Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference by John H. Montgomery)

To facilitate this forensic investigation process, a section was added describing potential sources of compounds detected in the environment.

This information should prove useful in determining the origin and timing of the release as well as formulating reasonable assessments in identifying potentially responsible parties.

The presentation of data remains virtually unchanged in this edition to make it easy for the reader to locate information. (Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference by John H. Montgomery)


When available, photolytic, hydrolysis, biodegradation, and volatilization half-lives of chemicals in various media are included.

This edition also includes drinking water exposure limits reported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

A Degradation Product, Impurities, and Chemical Composition Index were added to facilitate the origin of compounds and their degradation products in the environment.

An Appendix is included which includes environmental fate data for 297 compounds not included in the main text. (Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference by John H. Montgomery)

The lowest odor and/or taste thresholds of compounds profiled in the main text are now included. (Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference by John H. Montgomery)

The Groundwater Chemicals Desk Reference by John H. Montgomery book is based on more than 4,300 references, an increase of more than 1,700 references since the third edition.
