st] and the kinetic parameters estimated from the respirometric data were used.
More specific respirometric analyses were carried out with phenol, resorcinol and 5-methylresorcinol (hereinafter 5-MR) at concentration of 0.
Respirometric technique for determination of extant kinetic parameters describing biodegradation // Water Environ.
In the case of the short-term respirometric measurement after the recording of the endogenous oxygen uptake of activated sludge, a substrate was added and the substrate-dependent exogenous oxygen uptake was measured.
To investigate the biodegradability of the phenols studied, the short-term as well as biochemical oxygen demands and also the kinetic parameters estimated from the respirometric analysis were used.
The measurements of oxygen consumption and ammonium excretion were quantified simultaneously in 20 organisms placed in the respirometric chambers, the water flow on the chambers remained open for 3 hours to let the adjustment of the internal medium of the organisms exposed to a change of salinity (Diaz et al.
