Water solubilities of Aroclors 1016 and 1242 and the sorption and volatilization characteristics of the two polychlorinated biphenyls in aqueous solutions were studied. Water solubilities of Aroclors 1016 and 1242 were 0.42(+ or - 0.08) and 0.34(+ or - 0.06) mg/l, respectively. Partition coefficients for both Aroclors to bacteria and seston ranged from 1.2 to 8300. Volatilization studies indicate that the rate coefficient for loss of Aroclor 1016 or 1242 from water is about one-fourth the oxygen reaeration rate coefficient for the same system.
