The overarching objective of this project is to improve the fundamental understanding of organic chemical sorption to BCs in sediments while providing a practical means for evaluating this interaction quantitatively. This can be done by elucidating the polyparameter linear free energy relationship ppLFER parameters needed to evaluate HOC partitioning between aqueous solution and the water-wet surfaces of BCs, i.e., the compounds KBC and Freundlich n values, for any compound of interest.
