The sorption and desorption of 4-tert-octylphenol in aquatic systems were studied to unravel the underlying controls. The sorption process was relatively slow, reaching a final sorption equilibrium in 10 d. The sorption process was interpreted as consisting of two stages: an initial rapid adsorption on particle surface followed by a slow intraparticle diffusion. The key parameter affecting the sorption of 4-tert-octylphenol by sediment is the occurrence of colloids, which in turn explains the… CONTINUE READING
