Water analysis - Guidelines for the determination of total organic carbon (TOC) and dissolved organic carbon (DOC)
|Publication Date:||4 August 1997|
|ICS Code (Examination of water for chemical substances):||13.060.50|
The standard gives guidance for the determination of organic carbon in drinking water, ground water, surface water, sea water and waste water. It deals with definitions, interferences, reagents, and the sample pretreatment of water samples with a content of organic carbon ranging from 0,3 mg/l to 1000 mg/l while the lower value is only applicable in special cases, for example drinking water, measured with instruments capable of measuring these low levels. Higher concentrations may be determined after appropriate dilution.
