Formation of Adsorbable Organic Bromine in Treated Drinking Waters
MetadataShow full item record
Chlorination of drinking waters containing naturally occurring bromide and natural organic matter leads to formation of disinfection by-products, including brominated organic compounds which are of potential public health concern. Adsorbable organic halogen is the only method available to measure all halogenated organic disinfection by-products in drinking waters. This Thesis describes detailed mechanistic studies on the formation of adsorbable organic bromine, which will aid in minimisation of the production of these by-products during drinking water disinfection.
