  journal={Environmental Science \& Technology},
Reported and newly determined experimental data for aqueous solubility, octanol-water partition coefficient, vapor pressure, and Henry's law constants of the polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins are presented and reviewed. Correlation equations are derived for these properties as a function of chlorine number and molar volume, which enable the solubility and octanol-water partition coefficients of most congeners to be estimated with an accuracy within a factor of 2 and vapor pressure and Henry's…

Physicochemical properties of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons: Aqueous solubilities, n‐octanol/water partition coefficients, and Henry's law constants
Aqueous solubilities, n-octanol/water partition coefficients (K ow s), and Henry's law constants were determined for a range of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) using a generator-column,
Predictability of physicochemical properties of polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) based on single-molecular descriptor models.
The QSPR model based on the hyper-Wiener index of quantum-chemical descriptor gives useful statistical results and is able to distinguish among congeners with the same chlorine number, as well as satisfying thermodynamic relationships.
Vapor pressure measurements on halogenated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans. An extended data set for a correlation method
Vapor pressures are important parameters for the modelling of the environmental fate and incineration behavior of halogenated dibenzo-dioxins and dibenzofurans (1). Correlation methods play an
Physico-chemical properties of PCDD/PCDFs and phthalate esters
The best fit equation found by ‘forward multiple linear regression’ showed that the topology based CRI was the most important parameter for the modelling of solubility and n-octanol/water partition coefficient.
Temperature Dependence of Physical-Chemical Properties of Selected Chemicals of Environmental Interest. II. Chlorobenzenes, Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Polychlorinated Dibenzo-p-dioxins, and Dibenzofurans
Data are compiled and reviewed of the physical–chemical properties of chlorinated benzenes, biphenyls, and dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans, which control air–water partitioning, namely vapor
Experimental determination of Henry's Law Constant (HLC) for some lower chlorinated dibenzodioxins
Abstract The aqueous solubility and the Henry's Law Constants (HLCs) for some lower chlorinated dioxins were experimentally determined using a dynamic method. The values of the dimensionless
Selecting internally consistent physicochemical properties of organic compounds.
Methods are presented for selecting values of chemical properties of vapor pressure, water solubility, Henry's law constant, and octanol-water and octanol-air partition coefficients, which are
Physical-Chemical Properties of Three Congeneric Series of Chlorinated Aromatic Hydrocarbons
It is suggested that when assessing the environmental fate or toxicity of organic chemicals, especially those of congeneric series, such as PCBs, it is useful to gather and critically review their
Descriptors for isomer resolution of (bio-) distribution of chlorinated aromatic compounds.
The HPLC capacity factor of TCDDs on C18 columns can be predicted by SOLPAR with moderate accuracy (r = 0.9470), allowing for a preliminary calculation of log Kow, and a simplified LSER method fails.
Sorption processes of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin on soil in the presence of organic liquids
Soil contaminated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) often contains organic solvents as co-contaminants or as part of the clean-up process. The rate constants for adsorption and
