A hydrocarbon is one of the most simple and primitive of organic compounds. All living organisms produce hydrocarbons, one such example is plants, they synthesize waxes containing hydrocarbons in order to prevent leaf surface decay. This is what makes their leaves shiny.

• Dissolved oxygen (DO): Identifies aerobic and anaerobic regions of contaminated site and the chemical, physical and biochemical activities occurring. (Low dissolved oxygen levels can limit the bacterial metabolism of certain organic compounds) • pH: Identifies the acidity or alkalinity of water.

The total viable microbial biomass can be determined by the amount of phospholipid ester-linked fatty acids (PLFA) detected in a sample. Viable microbes have an intact membrane that contains phospholipids. Cellular enzymes hydrolyze and release the phosphate group from the fatty acids within minutes to hours of cell death.
