Degradation of a mixture of various organic substances was regarded as a multiple substrate phenomenon; an analytical model for evaluation of degradation rates of each component was developed and the calculation procedure was shown based on the analytical model. Each component of the mixture is degraded sequentially in order of degradation rates, and the degradation rates of each component can be evaluated by analysing a time-TOC concentration variation curve obtained experimentally. Calculated values were compared with experimental results.
