A desorption experiment is described in which the sediment-to-water partition coefficient for 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin is measured for a sample from Lake Ontario. After a contact period of 4 days, the logarithm of the partition coefficient on an organic carbon basis, LogKoc, ranges from 7.25 to 7.59. Information on the partitioning behavior of dioxin between water and dissolved or suspended matter derived from the sediment is provided.
