Abstract

The adsorption of tributylphenol ethylene oxide isomers containing various lengths of ethylene oxide chain and positional isomers of tributylphenol on a riverine sediment was Studied by thin-layer chromatography combined with high-performance liquid chromatography. The adsorption capacity of the sediment was compared with that of silica, alumina and diatomaceous earth. It was established that the adsorption capacity of the riverine sediment is similar to that of silica. The adsorption of surfactants on the sediment surface is not selective. Neither the length of the ethylene oxide chain nor the position of the butyl substituents on the phenol ring influence significantly the adsorption.
