The report attempts to determine the 'state of the art' of instrumental biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) methods through a survey of related literature that included material published between 1960 and 1973. Although the present 'state of the art' does not permit instrumental measurement of BOD for process control, an alternative solution is suggested for secondary treatment plants. Differential measurements (Delta TOC, Delta TOD, or Delta COD) of the secondary effluent and the processed sample produces a good estimate of the ultimate BOD. Successful efforts in this research would produce greater operating efficiency and reduction in pollution discharge to receiving streams by the waste treatment plants. (Modified author abstract)
