Abstract Sorption coefficients (K-DOC) on dissolved organic matter (DOM) have been determined by means of solid-phase microextraction (SPME) for hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs) of various classes, for example, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), noncondensed arenes, and alkanes. Relating the K-DOC values obtained to the octanol-water partition coefficients of the solutes results in class-specific correlations. Obviously, PAHs have a higher affinity to DOM than other HOCs with equal K-OW values. The different K-DOC to K-OW correlations can be combined into one general formula based on a modified Flory-Huggins concept. It permits the calculation of sorption coefficients from the solubility parameters (8) and K-OW values of the solutes and the solubility parameter of the sorbent. The latter value, which is specific to the DOM under consideration, can be determined from a single measured sorption coefficient. By applying the proposed Flory-Huggins concept, which is based on the presumption of nonspecific interactions between HOCs and DOM, the different affinities of PAHs, noncondensed arenes, and alkanes to DOM can be accurately predicted.
