The sorption/desorption equilibria and solvent extractabilities of phenol, o-cresol, and p-chlorophenol with respect to natural sorbents having different types of soil organic matter were investigated. Parallel tests in systems amended with birnessite (delta-MnO2), a solid-phase oxidative coupling catalyst, were also conducted. Sorption/desorption isotherms and solvent extraction data reveal that the relative isotherm linearities, desorption hysteresis, and extractabilities of these compounds… CONTINUE READING
