Sorption of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) in soil

Sorption of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) in soil

Hydrophobic organic compounds such as PAH and PCB in soils are mainly sorbed to organic matter. There exist several conceptual models about the sorption mechanisms which encompass covalent bonds, hydrophobic interactions and diffusion-controlled partitioning. The partitioning of hydrophobic compounds into the aqueous phase can be enhanced through sorption to dissolved organic matter (DOM).
