An ultraviolet differential absorption method for determination of total phenols in aqueous solutions consists of comparing the spectrum emitted by a sample made highly basic by NaOH to dissociate phenols with that of a slightly acidified sample. The method is selective, precise (± 2 percent), and rapid, and is applicable to single- and double-beamed spectrophotometers. The method is of considerable value for continuous monitoring. It has been applied successfully for over a year in continuous determination of phenols in the aqueous feed to a biofilter.
