This special issue of the International Journal of Environmental Analytical Chemistry contains selected papers presented at the workshop on sequential extraction in sediments and soils held in Sitges, Spain, in March/April 1992. The determination of extractable trace metal contents in soils and sediments is currently performed in laboratories to assess the bioavailable metal fraction and the importance and possibility of mobilisation of trace metals from polluted soil, sludge or sediment upon landfill application. The papers of this issue give examples of the present state of the art of single/sequential extraction analyses and highlight the strong need for the use of well defined and validated extraction procedures.
