    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    Leaching of a plasticizer, N-butylbenzenesulfonamide, from ground water multilevel sampling installations in nylon has been demonstrated. The leaching resulted in concentrations of DOC and apparent AOX, both comparable with those observed in landfill contaminated ground waters. It is concluded that nylon should not be used in studies of contamination with organic compounds.
