Adsorption isotherms of organic micropollutants in coexistence with natural organic matter (NOM) were analyzed to evaluate the impacts of pore size distribution of activated carbon (AC) on the competition effects of the NOM. Single solute adsorption experiments and simultaneous adsorption experiments with NOM contained in a coagulation-pretreated surface water were performed for four agricultural chemicals and three coal-based activated carbons (ACs) having different pore distributions.
