Total Organic Halogens

Total Organic Halogens (TOX) is the sum parameter of Total Organic Fluor (F), Chlorine (Cl), Iodine (I) and Bromine (Br). Total Organic Halogens are measured by adding the amount of Purgeable Organic Halogens (POX) to the amount of Adsorable Organic Halogens (AOX) measured in a water sample. An elemental combustion analyzer is able to measure the POX and AOX content in (waste)water samples according to microcoulometry detection technique.

International method to measure the amount of Total Organic Halogens (TOX) in water samples: EPA 9020
