Sorption of pyrene by regular and nanoscaled aluminum, zinc, and titanium oxides was examined. All oxides had low sorption for pyrene because of sorbed water molecules. Due to the larger surface area (SA) of nanoparticles, they had higher sorption for pyrene than the regular ones. Organic matter (OM) coating greatly enhanced pyrene sorption by all oxides, noting the importance of sorbed OM in sorption of hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs). Due to higher sorption site density in the sorbed OM… CONTINUE READING
