In this study, diffusive gradients in thin-films devices suitable for measuring polar organic compounds (o-DGT) were deployed in two soils for a range of times (5 h to 20 d) to measure the distribution and rates of exchange between solid phase and solution of three sulphonamides (SAs; sulfamethoxazole, SMX; sulfamethazine, SMZ; and sulfadimethoxine, SDM) and trimethoprim (TMP). o-DGT continuously removes antibiotics to a XAD gel layer after passage through a well-defined diffusion layer and therefore perturbs their concentration in the adjacent soil solution.

A dynamic model of solute interactions called DIFS (DGT induced fluxes in soils) was used to derive distribution coefficients for labile antibiotics (Kdl) and the rate constant for supply of antibiotics from solid phase to solution, expressed as a response time (Tc). Larger labile solid phase pools were observed for TMP than for SAs. The soils could resupply TMP so rapidly that in one soil, where Tc = 2 min, supply was controlled by diffusion. Response times for SAs were generally longer (>27 min), particularly for SDM (>3 h), implying that the supply of SAs to o-DGT samplers was limited by the desorption release rate.
