Heavier unsaturated hydrocarbons in paraffin series, nonane, decane, undecane, and dodecane, may occur in gasoline and in the exhausts--most often the nonane--but they have dominant sources in releases from consumer products (mainly from industrial synthetic building materials and housing equipment [35]), from the industrial waste streams and the contaminated urban soil [36-40], though environmental behavior of the vapors from the subsurface gasoline contamination of soil and groundwater is not a well understood phenomenon.
