A new and improved procedure was developed for determining leachabilities of proposed radioactive waste forms. Finely divided leached contro1 columns ,by this glass samples are leached in flowing deionized water; ions are continuously sorbed on ion exchange resins to ionic quality. Sorbed ions are eluted from the resin for atomic absorption analyses, Leachabilities measured procedure are lower and more consistent than those made in stagnant water without continuous ionic control. KEYWORDS:
