The formation of trichloronitromethane (TCNM) and dichloroacetonitrile (DCAN) was investigated during chlorination and chloramination of 31 organic nitrogen (org-N) compounds, including amino acids, amines, dipeptides, purines, pyrimidones and pyrroles. Tryptophan and alanine generated the greatest amount of TCNM during chlorination process and asparagine(More)
Ozone (O3) and ozone/hydrogen peroxide (O3/H2O2) can be used in water treatment facilities to remove many organic micropollutants with taste, odor, and color implications. The effects of O3 and O3/H2O2 on the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in subsequent chlorination and chloramination processes, however, are not well determined. In this study,(More)
The behavior of an oil-in-water emulsion was studied in the presence of protein fibrils for a wide range of fibril concentrations by using rheology, diffusing wave spectroscopy, and confocal laser scanning microscopy. Results showed that above a minimum fibril concentration depletion flocculation occurred, leading to oil droplet aggregation and enhanced(More)
We studied the stability of monodispersed polystyrene latex dispersions with protein fibrils at different concentrations at pH 2 using microscopy and diffusing wave spectroscopy. At low fibril concentrations, fibrils induced bridging flocculation due to the opposite charges between fibrils and the latex particles. At higher fibril concentration the(More)
Nitrogenous disinfection byproducts (N-DBPs) such as haloacetonitriles (HANs) and halonitromethanes (HNMs) are formed during water chlorination. Preozonation is sometimes applied to control trihalomethane (THM) formation, but this may risk promoting the formation of HNMs and HANs. The role of ozone in the formation of HANs and HNMs in natural waters remains(More)
Nitrite and nitrate are common inorganic salts in the diet and drinking water. It is generally believed that excessive intake of these substances may result in methemoglobinemia or other diseases. However, the traditional detection methods for nitrite and nitrate in dairy products restrain their applications to routine analysis due to the presence of(More)
In this present study, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([C(4)MIM]Cl), 1-octyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([C(8)MIM]Cl), and 1-decyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride ([C(10)MIM]Cl) were adopted as mobile phase additives in the high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to simultaneously separate phenoxy acid herbicides and phenols at neutral pH. It was(More)
