Dissolved organic carbon/water distribution coefficients (K(DOC)) were measured for a selection of PCBs with octanol/water partition coefficients (K(OW)) ranging from 10(5.6) to 10(7.5). A solid phase dosing and sampling technique was applied to determine K(DOC) to Aldrich humic acid. This technique is in particular suitable for determining the distribution of very hydrophobic chemicals to complex matrices like humic acids. The K(DOC) values were calculated from the experimental data using a… CONTINUE READING
