Abstract The toxicokinetics of four polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners were determined for the amphipod Diporeia spp. exposed to selected PCB congeners through both water and sediment to determine the effect of temperature and organism size (mass). For compounds with log K ow 6 or greater, the water-only uptake coefficient (k u ) was inversely proportional to the size of the organism at all temperatures. For monochlorobiphenyl, k u was directly proportional to organism mass only at 16°C… CONTINUE READING
