A simple method to determine the availability of sediment-sorbed organic contaminants was developed and validated. For 10 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, 4 polychlorinated biphenyls, and 9 chlorobenzenes in 6 sediments, we measured the fraction extracted by Tenax in 6 and 30 h. These fractions were compared with the rapidly desorbing fractions determined by consecutive Tenax extraction. Extraction by Tenax for 30 h completely removed the rapidly desorbing fraction plus some part of the slowly… CONTINUE READING
