The interaction of atrazine, simazine, terbutryn, prometryn, diuron and sandy as well as brown forest soil samples from different layers was investigated. A suitable, simple model was created, similarly to column chromatography. Polar or apolar character of the pesticides was proven to be the most important factor in the soil-pesticide interaction, increasing polarity resulted in enhanced bond strength between the soil and pesticide.
