Description of key information

The adsorption behavior of TMAC was studied in three different soils, including a loamy sand (Speyer 2.2 soil; %oc 1.87), a sandy loam (Speyer 2.3 soil; %oc 0.94) and a clay soil (Speyer 6S soil; %oc 1.64).
Adsorption kinetics were determined at an initial TMAC concentration of approximately 10 mg/L. A rapid increase of the adsorption of TMAC to the soils in the first 3 hours contact time was observed for all three soils. The adsorption plateau was reached after 3 hours for all three soils.
Adsorption isotherms were determined over a TMAC concentration range of 0.25 - 25 mg/L and a contact time of 24 hours. TMAC adsorption isotherms could be described by the Freundlich equation. KFoc was determined to be 91.5 (1/n=0.82) , 567 (1/n=0.64) and 979 (1/n=0.78) mL/g for the soil Speyer 2.2, Speyer 2.3 and Speyer 6S, respectively. The mean Koc for the three soils was 546 mL/g.
