Abstract: The solubility in water and the partition coefficients, K, in soils samples of residues of petroleum of different ages were determined using an organic cosolvent (methanol), and the solvophobic theory was applied for the interpretation of results. The behavior of the residuals turned out to be dependent of the cosolvent fraction. The values of K’s vary among 900 (Lkg-1) and 2,900 (Lkg-1) showing a general and marked increase for residues of increasing age. The determined parameters are useful for the modeling of environmental impact in polluted soils.
