Total Organic Halogens

Total organic halogen (TOX) is an analytically defined measurement that can provide an estimate of total organic bound halogen in water.

Total Organic Halides (TOX) methodology uses carbon adsorption with a microcoulometric-titration detector to detect all organic halides containing chlorine, bromine, and iodine that are adsorbed by granular activated carbon under the conditions of the method. Fluorine-containing species are not determined by this method.

Similar methodology is used analyze oil (TX) and solid (EOX) matrices.

ESG Laboratories applies method 9020B in analysis of Total Organic Halogens.  All samples are collected, handled, prepared and analyzed in accordance with USEPA 40 CFR Part 136 as amended.
