An attempt is made to determine the bioavailability of persistent organic pollutants (POP's) in environmental matrices. The approach is based on the use of the Hildebrand Solubility Parameter, and its individual parameters of hydrogen bonding, dispersion and polarity to select weak and strong solvents to extract POP's from soil matrices. The approach has been applied to both spiked soils and certified reference materials. Initial results indicate that it is possible to fractionate POP's from soil matrices based on their ability to be extracted from soil by particular solvents.
