The nitroaromatic explosive, 2, 4, 6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), has been extensively used for over 100 years, and this persistent toxic organic compound has resulted in soil contamination and environmental problems at many former explosives and ammunition plants, as well as military areas (Stenuit, Agathos 2010).
