|Additional Subjects||Toxicity ; Effluents ; Oxidation ; Sorption ; Photolysis ; Biodegradation ; Microbial degradation|
A method is described to measure the persistence of effluent toxicity. Fate pathways of photolysis, volatilization, oxidation, sorption, and microbial degradation are included. The method is intended to use without identifying the toxicants and is suitable for acute and chronic toxicity.
