Cosolvency effect in subsurface systems contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons and ethanol
Water Research, pp. 1449-1456, 2004.
In Brazil, most gas stations and terminals store tanks containing hydrated ethanol, gasohol and diesel. In case of spills, it is possible that a high aqueous ethanol concentration can facilitate the transfer of hydrocarbons into the aqueous phase, enhancing contaminant concentrations in groundwater, a process called cosolvency.
