This thesis investigates the impact of Cu(II) in drinking waters on the oxidants decay and disinfection by-products formation during chloramination of bromide-containing waters. A new analytical method allowing the quantification of the different halamines for the first time using Membrane Introduction Mass Spectrometry was developed. Cu(II) can significantly enhance the decomposition of brominated-amines thereby reducing the stability of the disinfectant residual. The impact of Cu(II) on DBPs formation varied depending on the organic material.

Effect of iron corrosion on the fate of dosed copper to inhibit nitrification in chloraminated water distribution systemZhan, Weixi (2011)Nitrification has been acknowledged as one of the major barriers towards efficient chloramination in water supply distribution systems. Many water utilities employing monochloramine as the final disinfectant have been ...
Impact of NOM character on copper adsorption by trace ferric hydroxide from iron corrosion in water supply systemZhan, Weixi; Sathasivan, A.; Joll, Cynthia; Wai, G.; Heitz, Anna; Kristiana, Ina (2012)The fate of trace concentrations of cupric sulfate (<0.4 mg/L) dosed into chloraminated distribution systems to inhibit nitrification has been shown in this study to be controlled by at least two crucial factors: the ...
