Abstract

This paper describes the procedure for determining level of adsorbable organic halogen (AOX), referring to the two main carbon adsorption methods, to the procedures of combustion in an oven and to the coulometric titration of the halogen. Some tests performed with the method of adsorption on a microcolumn are described and the analytical accuracy briefly discussed. The paper also describes the possible fields of application of the AOX technique, its limitations and extensions such as the extractable organic halogen (EOX) and purgeable organic halogen (POX) techniques.
