Abstract Fate and transport of hydrophobic organic compounds (HOC) are strongly influenced by their interactions with environmental matrices. These interactions can be grouped into those of non-aqueous phase liquids (NAPL), i.e., spreading of oil on solid surfaces and its movement in porous media and those of predominantly water-dissolved molecules which may sorb onto solids or partition into organic matter or NAPL phases. All these types of sequestration phenomena lead to reduced contact of water-borne organisms with the HOC. In contrast, sorption to mobile matrices may mobilize HOC and thus increase bioavailability and toxicological risk.
