Electrochemical Methods of Pollution Analysis

  • B. D. Epstein

Abstract

The material in this chapter is intended to serve as a guide to the electrochemical methods that have been or, in some cases, can be used to determine aspects of air and water quality. It would really be insufficient to talk about the analysis of pollutants by themselves inasmuch as dissolved oxygen, for instance, is not a water pollutant even though the presence of insufficient dissolved oxygen in a natural water is often indicative of an unhealthy or “polluted” condition.

Keywords

Dissolve Oxygen Biochemical Oxygen Demand Sensor Electrode Water Pollution Control Federation Chlorine Residual 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
