This study sought to examine the solubilization of mixtures of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in solutions of the nonionic surfactants: Tween 20, Tween 80, Triton X 100, Brij 35, and Brij 58. When pyrene (PYR), fluoranthene (FLA), and phenanthrene (PHE) were solubilized from two-PAH mixtures, the PAH concentrations and molar solubilization ratios deviated very little from those as found in the single-PAH systems. When these PAHs were solubilized from the three-PAH mixtures, however… CONTINUE READING
