The sorption behavior of hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs) in the environment has been the focus of numerous studies. In most of them, the role of aliphatic domains in sorption has been ignored, even although aliphatic components make up a significant portion of the soil organic matter (SOM). The objective of this review is to elucidate the role of the… CONTINUE READING
