The article offers information on the proper handling of emulsion to measure oil content in water which provide precise results. It discusses the emulsion-breaking technique for the completion of phase separation which are applied in most oil-in-water measurements for liquid-to-liquid extraction. It shows the valid measurement steps which include sample setting, acidification, adding of table salt, sodium sulfate filtration, centrifugation, and ultrasonic bath.
