Abstract
The protocol outlines the methods to be used to evaluate the organic carbon normalization theory with respect to nonpolar organic compounds (NOC). The carbon normalization theory states that the toxicity of NOC to benthic infaunal organisms is determined by the total organic content of the sediment. Toxicity of NOC in the sediments is generally attributed to the compound found in the interstitial water, not adsorbed to the sediments.
