Abstract

Bacterial growth potential was measured in an ultrapure-water pilot plant by modified assimilable organic carbon (AOC) and UV-oxidizable carbon tests. An ion-exchange unit increased UV-oxidizable carbon, yet did not significantly (P ≥ 0.05) alter AOC values. UV radiation decreased UV- oxidizable carbon and increased AOC.
