Currently, the most popular method of analyzing total organic halide in water involves carbon adsorption, oxidative combustion, and measurement of the hydrogen halide by microcoulometry. Total organic halide can be used as an indicator of water quality, providing a direct measure of disinfection by-product formation, and in some circumstances, a surrogate measure of individual organic pollutants. An important application of organic halide measurements is in unit process design, control, and monitoring. Each potential application, however, must be carefully assessed to determine the usefulness of organic halide measurements.
