  • irrigation with treated wastewater on pesticides - organic microcontaminants in soils;
  • DOM effect, on chemical behavior of organic xenobiotics;
  • DOM binding with xenobiotic organic chemicals (XOCs);
  • XOC sorption on immobile surfaces - complexation with soluble or suspended macrospecies on their transport;
  • partitioning of xenobiotic organic compound (XOC) - and dissolved organic matter (DOM) with soil;
  • retardation factor, function of dissolved organic matter (DOM) concentration;
  • binding of XOCs with DOM - by linear free-energy relationship (LFER);
