Understanding the level of organic pollutants and their potential environmental impact in water streams and discharges is critically important to the health of our water ways and for the optimal management of waste water treatment plants.A number of standard tests, specifically Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) have been developed to estimate the oxygen demand of an aqueous sample via oxidative degradation of the organic material present in the sample . Due to a range of drawbacks, the currently available techniques have failed to completely satisfy the market demands for sensitive, reliable, real-time, automated measurement of organic pollutant levels in both laboratory based and on-line analysers.
