|Title:||A modified method for the determination of chemical oxygen demand (COD) for samples with high salinity and low organics||Authors:||Stuckey, David C.
|Keywords:||Oxygen;Salinity;Sewage||Issue Date:||2009||Publisher:||Elsevier||Source:||Bioresource Technology, 2009, Volume 100, Issue 2, Pages 979-982||Abstract:||This study proposes a modification to the standard method for the determination of the chemical oxygen demand of samples with a salinity up to 40 g NaCl/L and low organic concentrations (20-230 mg COD/L). The masking of chloride by the use of a HgSO4:Cl ratio of 20:1 prior to digestion, and the use of 3 g K2Cr2O7/L in the digestion solution resulted in an error of less than 10% and 12% for samples containing 40 g NaCl/L at 20-190 mg COD/L and 230 mg COD/L, respectively. Comparison of the standard method with the new proposed method using a synthetic sewage highlights the large errors (50-85%) of the standard method in contrast to an error of less than 10% for the proposed modified method.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/6606||ISSN:||09608524||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.biortech.2008.06.038||Rights:||© 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
