The N-N[H4.sup.+] and N-N[O2.sup.-] levels were measured weekly with indophenol blue and sulphanilamide methods, respectively.
In this method, the spectrophotometric measurement of azo-dye obtained from the reaction of N-(1-naphtyl)-ethylenediamine with diazonium salt, formed by the reaction of the nitrite and sulphanilamide in the acidic environment, is carried out (Fig.
The nitrate present in the filtrate was then reduced to nitrite, which was measured by diazotization of sulphanilamide and coupled with naphthylethylene diamine, as in Najawa and Cortas's method.

This was followed by addition of 100 [micro]l of Griess reagent (0.1% N-ethylenediamine dihydrochloride and 1% sulphanilamide in 5% [H.sub.3]P[O.sub.4]) and incubated for 15 min at RT in dark.
In this reaction, nitrite reacts with a mixture of N-(1-Naphthyl)ethylenediamine and sulphanilamide and forms a chromophore that has strong absorbance at 545 nm.

Then, 20ul of Griess reagent 1: 1 mixture of 1% sulphanilamide dihydrochloride and 0.1% Naphthyl ethylenediamine dihydrochloride in 2.5% H3PO4.
In brief, nitrous acid was formed in an acid medium and, in the presence of nitrite, the formed acid diazotizes sulphanilamide, which was coupled with N- (1-naphthyl) ethylenediamine, and the resulting azo dye could then be measured at 540 nm.
