Some of the bio-magnified chemicals are elements such as selenium, mercury, nickel, or organic derivatives such as methyl-mercury. Others are in the class of chemicals known as chlorinated hydrocarbons (or organo-chlorines). These are extremely insoluble in water, but are freely soluble in organic solvents, including animal fats and plant oils (these are collectively known as lipids).
