Example text

During the test the hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI» in the dichromate is reduced to trivalent chromium (Cr(IIl» as the majority of the organic material present is oxidised to carbon dioxide and water. The dichromate must always be present in excess and the COD value is determined by subtracting the quantity of dichromate remaining after 2 h from that present in a 'blank' determination. Blank determinations are always carried out, either in duplicate or preferably in triplicate. Most organic materials present in the wastewater are destroyed during the test but the addition of a silver sulphate catalyst is essential to permit the oxidation of low molecular weight fatty acids and straight-chain aliphatics.

The answer to that question is that it is the only simple test we have that gives any ideas of what is biodegradable and hence what will produce an oxygen demand in a wastewater. It also provides a relative standard by which to judge the quality of effluents and river waters. It also provides a useful, if not totally accurate, parameter with which it is possible to consider the oxygen demand loading on wastewater treatment units. As long as it is never used as a precise measurement for either potential oxygen demand in a stream or at a wastewater treatment works it remains a very useful tool, perhaps still the most useful, for the definition of pollution and pollution loading.

The combined nitrogen remains in the acid solution in the form of ammonium sulphate. It is only the trivalent combined nitrogen which is thus converted. Nitrogen initially in the form of azide, azine, azo, hydrazone, nitrate, nitrite, nitrile, nitro, nitroso, oxime and semicarbonazone (Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater, 1985) is not accounted for. Fortunately these would not normally represent an appreciable proportion of the combined nitrogen present in surface waters.
