Abstract

Hydrophobic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are usually found in rainwater with higher concentrations than the values determined from Henry's law partitioning. Laboratory experiments demonstrated that dissolved organic compounds, such as humic acids, act as cosolvents to solubilize the VOCs. Wet removal by rainfall is a significant sink of trace VOCs.
