According to a recent conceptual model for hydration-assisted sorption of organic compounds in natural organic matter (NOM), certain polar moieties of dry NOM are unavailable for compound sorption due to strong intra- and intermolecular NOM interactions. Water molecules solvate these moieties creating new sorption sites at solvated contacts. It is expected that the greater a compound's ability to undergo specific interactions with NOM, the greater will be the hydration-assisted sorption effect… CONTINUE READING
