Determination of Phenol (SM 5530 B Method)

Determination of Phenol (SM 5530 B Method)

Within the scope of the National Environmental Methods Index (NEMI), the SM 5530 B method, which includes a test method for the determination of phenol, has been developed.

Determination of Phenol (SM 5530 B Method)

Phenols, defined as the hydroxy derivatives of benzene and its condensed nuclei, occur in domestic and industrial wastewater, natural waters and drinking water sources. Chlorination of such waters can produce odorous and unpleasant-tasting chlorophenols. Phenol removal processes in water treatment include superchlorination, chlorine dioxide or chloramine treatment, ozonation, and activated carbon adsorption.

Phenolic compounds are extremely toxic to humans, animals and aquatic organisms, and also form carcinogenic chlorophenols in the presence of chlorine. They are recognized as priority water pollutants around the world.

Phenols, or phenolic compounds, are moderately water-soluble pollutants common in wastewater of various industries, including oil and gas, paint production, phenolic resin production, paper and pulp mills, and pharmaceuticals. Phenolic compounds are used in disinfectants in low concentrations and are also found in many alcoholic beverages, drugs, and cosmetics.

In the tests and analyzes carried out in our organization, which has a wide range of technological equipment, trained and experienced staff and applies the most modern methods, national and international standards and legal regulations in force are complied with. Among the numerous tests performed in this context, there are also phenol determination (SM 5530 B method) services.
