  55. ncbi request reprint Modeling maximum adsorption capacities of soot and soot-like materials for PAHs and PCBs
    Paul C M Van Noort
    Institute for Inland Water Management and Wastewater Treatment RIZA, P O Box 17, 8200 AA Lelystad, The Netherlands
    Environ Sci Technol 38:3305-9. 2004
    ..Maximum adsorption capacities decreased by 1-2 orders of magnitude as the contact area increased by 50%. This points to adsorption sites being hardly larger than sorbates...

    Michiel T O Jonker
    Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences, Utrecht University, P O Box 80176, 3508 TD Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Environ Sci Technol 39:7889-95. 2005
    ..Our results imply reduced chemical risks for soot and soot-like materials, casting doubts on current risk assessment procedures and environmental quality standards of pyrogenic PAHs...
  57. ncbi request reprint Responses of benthic invertebrates to combined toxicant and food input in floodplain lake sediments

    Department of Aquatic Ecology and Ecotoxicology, Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics, Faculty of Science, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
    Environ Toxicol Chem 21:2165-71. 2002
    ..It is concluded that not the toxicant load but the combination of food and contaminants determines the persistence of benthic invertebrates and therewith the benthic invertebrate composition in complexly polluted ecosystems...
