EPA Method 835.1210:
Soil Thin Layer Chromatography

Leaching of chemicals through soil is an important process which affects a chemical?s distribution in the environment. If a chemical is tightly adsorbed to soil particles, it will not leach through the soil profile but will remain on the soil surface. If a chemical is weakly adsorbed, it will leach through the soil profile and may reach ground waters and then surface waters. Knowledge of the leaching potential is essential under certain circumstances for the assessment of the fate of chemicals in the environment.

This guideline is intended to meet testing requirements of both the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) (7 U.S.C. 136, et seq.) and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) (15 U.S.C. 2601).
