Chlorinated ethanes are contaminants commonly found in soil and groundwater. The potential of nanoscale bimetallic ͑Fe/ Pd͒ particles for the hydrodechlorination of seven chlorinated ethanes ͑C 2 H 6−x Cl x ͒ was evaluated in batch experiments. Hexachloroethane (HCA) ͑C 2 Cl 6 ͒, pentachloroethane (PCA) ͑C Cl 4 ) were rapidly hydrodechlorinated (9-28 min half-lives) at a nanoparticle loading of 5 g/L. End products were ethane (61-87%) and ethylene (6-16%). Only one chlorinated intermediate, adoi:10.1061/(asce)0733-9372(2005)131:1(4) fatcat:cd6exhgcrje5dh3n45b6bineeu
