Evidence accumulated during the last two decades suggests that only a fraction of any chemical in soil is available to organisms, and soil-related effects on bioavailability should be considered in optimizing soil remediation cleanup levels. In the current study, the absolute and relative bioavailabilities of pentachlorophenol (PCP) from freshly spiked and environmentally aged soils varying in organic carbon content, clay content, and pH were examined using a rat model. PCP is a broad-spectrum… CONTINUE READING
