Total Organic Carbon Analyzer (TOC)

TOC is used to analyse the quantity of Total Carbon (TC), Inorganic Carbon (IC) and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) in aqueous solutions and solid samples, like groundwater, suspensions, sediments or soils.

The method is based on oxidation of carbon by catalytic combustion and analyses of originated CO2 by non-dispersive infrared detection. TOC content can be measured by difference (TOC = TC - IC) or "non-purgeable-organic-carbon" (NPOC) method.

Equipment: TOC-V-CPH, Shimadzu, combined with SSM-5000A Solid Sample Module
