Sorption of anthracene and two herbicides (diuron and atrazine) by soils from aqueous solutions and binary solvent mixtures consisting of methanol-water and acetone-water was measured. These data were used to evaluate recently proposed solvophobic theory for describing sorption of hydrophobic molecules from mixed solvents. As predicted by the theory, the sorption coefficient (K sup M) decreased exponentially with increasing fraction of the organic cosolvent (f sup c) in the binary solvent mixtures.
