Temperature Dependence of Physical-Chemical Properties of Selected Chemicals of Environmental Interest. II. Chlorobenzenes, Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Polychlorinated Dibenzo-p-dioxins and Dibenzofurans

Author(s)

W Y. Shiu, K C. Ma

Abstract

ta are compiled and reviewed of the physical-chemical properties of chlorinated benzenes, biphenyls, dibenzo-p-dioxins, and dibenzofurans, which control air-water partitioning, namely vapor pressure, aqueous solubility, and Henry's law constant over the environmentally relevant temperature range of 5 C to 50 C. Recommended values at 25 C, and nist-equations for estimating these properties over the temperature range of 5 C to 50 C, are provided. Corresponding enthalpies of phase transition are also reported.
