Reversed phase liquid chromatography of PCBs as a basis for the calculation of water solubility and log Kow for polychlorobiphenyls

Environmental Analysis


Water solubility (Sw) and log Kow values have been determined for 154 possible polychlorobiphenyls using the retention indices obtained by RP-HPLC and structurally selected PCB congeners with known log Kow values for the regression lines. The water solubility data are melting point corrected.
