Yet, the extent of sorption, transformation, and interactions among the numerous organic frac fluid and oil and gas wastewater constituents upon environmental release is hardly known. This study aimed to advance our current understanding of processes that control the environmental fate and toxicity of commonly used hydraulic fracturing …
