The dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from a stream water near a peat deposit was fractionated into hydrophobic-acid (HbA), hydrophobic-neutral (HbN), and hydrophilic (Hl) subcomponents by XAD-8 chromatography. The capacity of these fractions and the total (unfractionated) water to bind hydrophobic organic contaminants was measured by equilibrium dialysis, and the effect of binding on contaminant bioavailability was measured inDaphnia magna. Model contaminants were the poly cyclic aromatic… CONTINUE READING
