Principles of method if other than guideline:
The aim of this study was to examine the partitioning of BPA compared to BPAF and BPS in soil−water and octanol−water systems at different pH values. Sorption of BPA, BPA,F and BPS was measured by independently quantifying aqueous and sorbed-solid phase concentrations on four soils varying in physical and chemical properties. pH-dependent octanol−water distribution coefficients (DowpH) were measured for three chemicals at several pH points with subsequent octanol−water distribution curves calculated over a wider pH range and correlated to predicted pH-dependent organic carbon (OC) normalized partition coefficients (DocpH).
