Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) desorption partition coefficients between black carbon and water (K(BC)) were determined using 114 historically contaminated and background sediments from eight different rural and urban waterways. Black carbon was measured after oxidation at 375 degrees C for 24 h. Organic carbon-water partition coefficients (K(OC)) required for the calculation of K(BC) values were determined for two- to six-ring parent and C1- to C4-alkyl PAHs based on the lower range of… CONTINUE READING
