Comment on "The Sorptive Capacity of Animal Protein [DeBruyn and Gobas. 2007. Environ Toxicol Chem 26:1803-1808]"

Authors: Sierra Rayne

In their article, DeBruyn and Gobas [2007. Environ Toxicol Chem 26:1803-1808] claim to "present a compilation and meta-analysis of published data to estimate the relative sorptive capacities of animal proteins and lipids for neutral organic chemicals." However, the dataset of these authors contains compounds that would be effectively entirely ionized at physiological pH values, rendering the assumption of neutrality and any subsequent analyses based thereupon incorrect.
