Partly due to the sampling technique and partly due to the inherent nature of the wet-air oxidation process for the destructive oxidation of waste compounds, a variety of potential problems with the interpretation and analysis of the raw concentration data become apparent. The objective of this paper is to identify these complicating factors, indicate their effects, and develop a methodology for the determination of true kinetic parameters from raw data. To illustrate the effectiveness of the resulting model, first order reaction rate constants are determined from m-xylene data. These constants are compared to ones computed using conventional analysis techniques.
