Abstract

Data presented in this article show the extent of the inner filter effect (IFE) in fluorescence measurements of wastewater and wastewater-impacted surface water samples. Particularly, data show the effectiveness of a commonly used method for IFE correction based on UV absorbance measurement to reinstate the linearity of the relationship between fluorescence intensities and absorbance values. Data report also the effect of nitrates in fluorescence measurements of wastewater samples. Finally, data presented in this work show the effect of total suspended solids (TSS) in the UV absorbance and fluorescence measurements of different waters. Particularly, data describe the TSS effect in fluorescence intensities acquired at different pairs of excitation-emission wavelengths, and in waters with different TSS concentration. Data of this article are related to the publication “M. Sgroi, E. Gagliano, F.G.A. Vagliasindi, P. Roccaro, Inner filter effect, suspended solids and nitrite/nitrate interferences in fluorescence measurements of wastewater organic matter, Sci. Total Environ., In press” [1]. Raw data are available in a public repository (https://doi.org/10.17632/4zss49jycj.1).
