Abstract: Desorption hysteresis has been reported frequently in the literature, with several theories advanced to explain the cause of this phenomenon. Batch experiments were performed to observe sorption-desorption behaviour of endrin and heptachlor epoxide onto chitin in seawater as a function of chitin concentration, temperature and salinity. For full range of solids concentrations, sorption was described by a single linear partition coefficient. Desorption hysteresis was found at low chitin concentrations for endrin, increasing both at low temperatures and high salinity values. Results of these experiments were interpreted with a radial-diffusion sorption rate model. Model predictions of the desorption experiments showed that slow desorption rates explained most of the apparent hysteresis. The “salting effect” in marine systems makes partition coefficients ∼ 0.2 log unit higher than comparable partition coefficents measured in freshwater.
