PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS AND FATTY ACIDS IN WASTEWATER EFFLUENTS.
Date of Original Version
Analyses of fatty acids in effluents from three secondary wastewater treatment plants by gas chromatography of fatty acid methyl esters confirm that the predominant fatty ratios in effluents are 16:0, 18:0, and 18:1. Gas chromatographic analyses of hydrocarbons isolated from lipid extracts of effluents by column chromatography and thin layer chromatography indicate that petroleum hydrocarbons are discharged by two of the treatment plants studied.
