To quickly detect organic compounds in soil, a low-cost screening method has been developed to use a simple procedure without requiring specific reagents or equipment. This method semi-quantitatively detects organic compounds and indicates at concentration levels of 2,000 to 15,000 mg kg-1. The indication will be helpful to know where grounds are polluted with organic compounds at a site, especially when tracking organic compounds in soil during remediation work.
