Heavy metals are detrimental to human health and their solubilities and movements in soils may likely influence their accumulations in human organs through food chains. This study was conducted to observe heavy metal solubilities and movements in columns of a tropical soil treated with lime and/or zeolite. Unlike Zn, most of the added. Pb. Cd, and Cu were immobilized in topsoil. Lime effectively reduced the heavy metal (Pb, Cd, Cu, and Zn) solubility and retarded their movements due to the lime role in enhancing the soil pH. Zeolite and its interaction with lime show no consistent effect on heavy metal solubility and movements in the soil columns.
