Octanol/water distribution coefficients, water solubilities, and sediment/water partition coefficients are basic to any assessment of transport or dispersion of organic pollutants. In addition, these determinations are prerequisites for many chemical or biological process studies. In response to the accepted need for this type of data and in light of the widespread discrepancies in reported data, this report sets forth conventional methods of measurement and identifies potential sources of measurement error for these three physical properties.
