Abstract

Sorption phenomena of very hydrophobic compounds (VHOCs, log K-OW > 5) on dissolved humic organic matter (DOM) are overwhelmingly based on partitioning processes. In this respect, DOM is very similar to "rubbery" soil/sediment OM. To exclude system adsorption effects, the DOM sorption coefficients (K-DOM) Of VHOCs were determined using a dynamic approach based on the VHOCs' aqueous solubility enhancement in the presence of DOM. Partition coefficients are strongly correlated to the analytes' K-OW across the alkane, PAH, and PCB groups under study. These three "families" are regarded to be good models of hydrophobic partitioning. On the basis of a uniform one-parameter concept characterizing sorption on amorphous polymers, Hildebrand solubility parameters of amorphous polymeric sorbents, including DOM, and of sorbates can be calculated on the basis of partition coefficients. Likewise, partition coefficients can be estimated using Hildebrand solubility parameters. Literature-based partition coefficients on DOM fit very well in this universal one-parameter concept. On using our own sorption data of PAHs, PCBs, and alkanes on DOM, an almost identical solubility parameter for the DOM polymer under study is obtained. The concept is also very useful in understanding both waterborne and airborne bioconcentration processes, which are considered to be partitioning phenomena.
