Studies were conducted to assess the effects of black carbon, clay type and aging (1-1.5yr) on desorption and bioavailability of hexachlorobenzene (HCB) in spiked artificial sediments. Tenax (a super sorbent)-mediated desorption was used to examine the effects of these parameters on the physicochemical availability of HCB. The Tenax-mediated desorption of(More)
The desorption kinetics of hexachlorobenzene (HCB) in four freshly spiked artificial sediments were determined using a polymeric adsorbent Tenax-mediated desorption. The sediments included a standard sediment (SS) prepared as per Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development 218 guidelines and three derived artificial sediments prepared by(More)
