Question
What could cause BOD depletion to be non-linear?
Summary
Non-linear BOD depletion
Answer
Non-linear BOD depletion is usually caused by sample toxicity. If it is required to perform BOD on these samples, use the lowest possible dilutions to estimate the BOD. If toxicity is a recurring concern, COD analysis may be necessary.
