Dynamic passive dosing for studying the biotransformation of hydrophobic organic chemicals: microbial degradation as an example.

Abstract

Biotransformation plays a key role in hydrophobic organic compound (HOC) fate, and understanding kinetics as a function of (bio)availability is critical for elucidating persistence, accumulation, and toxicity. Biotransformation mainly occurs in an aqueous environment, posing technical challenges for producing kinetic data because of low HOC solubilities and… (More)
