Soot particles vary in pore structure, surface properties, and content of authigenic (native) extractable organic chemicals. To better understand the effects of these properties on sorption, aqueous sorption isotherms for 14C-labeled phenanthrene and 1,2,4-trichlorobenzene were obtained for four soots of varying properties: two diesel reference soots, a hexane soot, and an ozonated hexane soot. Substantial isotherm nonlinearity was observed. In comparison to diesel soot SRM 2975, diesel soot… CONTINUE READING
