A method was developed to determine the ammonium oxidation rate (potential) of unenriched natural samples by measuring the nitrite produced in shaken slurries. Addition of chlorate to the samples prevented nitrite from being oxidized to nitrate. The effectiveness and specificity of chlorate were tested with pure cultures of nitrite and ammonium oxidizers, as well as in soil and sediment slurries. It was concluded that chlorate had relatively little inhibitory effect on ammonium oxidation… CONTINUE READING
