Total organic carbon (TOC) is the amount of carbon bound

in an organic compound and is often used as a non-specific
indicator of water quality or cleanliness of pharmaceutical
manufacturing equipment.

A typical analysis for TOC measures both the total carbon

present as well as the inorganic carbon (IC). Subtracting the
inorganic carbon from the total carbon yields TOC. Another
common variant of TOC analysis involves removing the IC
portion first and then measuring the leftover carbon. This
method involves purging an acidified sample with carbon-free
air or nitrogen prior to measurement, and so is more
accurately called non-purgeable organic carbon (NPOC).

Importance of TOC Testing
TOC is very important in detecting contaminants in drinking water, cooling water, water
used in semiconductor manufacturing, and water for pharmaceutical use. Analysis may be
made either as an online continuous measurement or a lab-based measurement.

TOC detection is an important measurement because of the effects it may

have on the environment, human health, and manufacturing processes. TOC is a highly
sensitive, non-specific measurement of all organics present in a sample. It, therefore, can
be used to regulate the organic chemical discharge to the environment in a manufacturing
plant. In addition, low TOC can confirm the absence of potentially harmful organic
chemicals in water used to manufacture pharmaceutical products. TOC is also of interest in
the field of potable water purification due to disinfection of byproducts. Inorganic carbon
poses little to no threat.
