New dioxane book has a nice surprise

Got a copy of Environmental Investigation and Remediation: 1,4-Dioxane and Other Solvent Stabilizers for the library, autographed by the author, Tom Mohr. I was thrilled to see that I was mentioned in the acknowledgments for helping Tom with his initial white paper.

Dioxane is an insidious chemical. Just two of its nasty characteristics: it often makes a longer plume in groundwater than the solvent with which it’s associated, and it has a boiling point of 101C, which makes it difficult to remove from water. It’s also a probable carcinogen and widespread. The EPA may regulate it soon, which would make this book very timely.
