Abstract

To verify the validity of the simple detection method aimed at in this study and confirm the ability of the turbidity analysis as a screening method for alcohol-extracted organic compounds, the performance was compared with the methods commonly used in laboratories or gravimetry and gas chromatographyflame ionization detection technique (GC-FID). As a result, the turbidity analysis worked to simply detect petroleum at concentration levels of 500 to 10,000 mg kg -1 and was comparable to other methods over a variety of soil properties and petroleum hydrocarbon compounds. The turbidity analysis is helpful for screening soils polluted with organic compounds extractable with alcohol, without any special reagents or apparatus at a site.
