Abstract To better understand the environmental behaviour of fuel oil used in the power industry ( Fuel oil no.6), in case of accidental spilling in groundwater, a two-step experimental study with laboratory batch equilibrations and with a twodimensional physical model of aquifer was carried-out. Preliminary characterisation of the the oil mixture included determination of boiling points distribution of homologue class of hidrocarbons, followed by determination of mass transfer coefficients at the water-oil iterface of relevant BTX, PAH and TPH substrates. Effective solubilities of SWSCs (Slightly water soluble compounds) were obtained and an emp
