Experimental evidence of incomplete fluorescence quenching of pyrene bound to humic substances: implications for Koc measurements.


Fluorescence quenching (FQ) is extensively used for quantitative assessment of partition coefficients (KOC) of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) to natural organic materials - humic substances (HS). The presence of bound PAHs with incompletely quenched fluorescence would lead to underestimation of the KOC values measured by this technique. The goal of… (More)
