Title: Functional behaviour and microscopic analysis of ammonium sensors subject to fouling in activated sludge processes

Abstract

ISE-ammonium sensors subject to fouling display an increase in response time and an inexorable degradation of the measurement accuracy. The fouling morphology and composition were also studied by EDX analysis.
