Analytical Characterization of Halobenzoquinones as Emerging Disinfection Byproducts in Disinfected WaterDownload
Water disinfection is necessary for killing pathogens, but it causes an unintended chemical risk from the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs). Epidemiological studies show a potential association of water disinfection with increased risk of bladder cancer. It is unknown what DBPs are...
Disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are an unwanted consequence of water disinfection. Consumption of chlorinated drinking water has been associated with an increased risk of bladder cancer; however, the DBP or DBPs responsible has not been identified. The N-nitrosamines are a class of DBPs that are...
