This paper presents an overview of the literature on concentrations and mechanisms for the uptake (and emission) of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in grass samples. Numerous experimental studies were performed to determine the properties of PCBs and dl-PCBs. Currently available data with respect to e.g. vapor pressure, solubility, Henry’s Law Constants or lifetimes in compartments are judged to be sufficient to assess the uptake and distribution in plant surfaces, at least as input parameters in box...
