Abstract
The results of a number of laboratory studies are presented to demonstrate an inverse relationship between concentration of adsorbing solids and partition coefficient. Various functional forms which define the relation are developed and correlated with the data. A power-law dependence of partition coefficient on concentration of solids is shown. The signficance of this relationship in assessing the fate of hydrophobic pollutants in natural water systems is discussed.
