By A.E. Hartemink, A.B. McBratney and Ravendra Naidu (Eds.)

This ebook starts with an summary of present considering on bioavailability, its definition, leading edge learn in speciation and development in instruments for assessing chemical bioavailability within the terrestrial atmosphere. the second one component of the e-book makes a speciality of the position of chemical speciation in bioavailability. part 3 addresses bioavailability and ecotoxicity of contaminants and leads into the subsequent part on bioavailability of food and agrichemicals. next sections offer an outline of instruments at present getting used and new leading edge options to evaluate contaminant bioavailability. The final portion of the publication builds on earlier sections in concerning bioavailability to danger overview and the way this may be used for coping with hazards linked to infected land.

Example text

The latter has led to the use of the OC-normalized partition coefficients (Koc) for estimating contaminant sorption with the soil-specific distribution coefficient, Kd (Koc = Kd/foc, where foc is fraction of organic carbon). Another indirect effect of soil organic matter is its role on limiting contaminant mass-transfer. The rate of mass-transfer of an organic contaminant from soil particles to the surrounding porewater is inversely proportional to the contaminant’s soil-water distribution coefficient (Pignatello, 2000).
