Abstract
The aqueous solubility, adsorption, mobility, microbial degradation, and volatility of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were studied under laboratory conditions. The dissolution of Aroclor 1242 in water required five months to reach equilibrium. Generally, the water-soluble fractions of the PCB fluids were richer in the lower chlorinated isomers than in the original mixture of isomers in the fluid.
