Occurrence of a new generation of disinfection byproducts.
TLDR
A survey of disinfection byproduct (DBP) occurrence in the United States was conducted at 12 drinking water treatment plants to obtain quantitative occurrence information for new DBPs (beyond those currently regulated and/or studied) for prioritizing future health effects studies.
Water analysis: emerging contaminants and current issues.
TLDR
This biennial review covers developments in water analysis over the period of 2005-2006 and is limited to new, emerging contaminants and environmental issues that are driving most of the current research.
Haloacetonitriles vs. regulated haloacetic acids: are nitrogen-containing DBPs more toxic?
TLDR
Using microplate-based Chinese hamster ovary cell assays for chronic cytotoxicity and acute genotoxicity, HANs were analyzed and the rank order of declining genotoxic rank order was IAN > BAN approximately DBAN > BCAN > CAN > TCAN > DCAN.
Occurrence and mammalian cell toxicity of iodinated disinfection byproducts in drinking water.
TLDR
In general, compounds that contain an iodo-group have enhanced mammalian cell cytotoxicity and genotoxicity as compared to their brominated and chlorinated analogues.
Halonitromethane drinking water disinfection byproducts: chemical characterization and mammalian cell cytotoxicity and genotoxicity.
TLDR
This research demonstrated the integration of the procedures for the analytical chemistry and analytical biology when working with limited amounts of sample and found the brominated nitromethanes were more cytotoxic and genotoxic than their chlorinated analogues.
Chemical and biological characterization of newly discovered iodoacid drinking water disinfection byproducts.
TLDR
IA is the most toxic and genotoxic DBP in mammalian cells reported in the literature, and data suggest that chloraminated drinking waters that have high bromide and iodide source waters may contain these iodoacids and most likely other iodo-DBPs.
Drowning in disinfection byproducts? Assessing swimming pool water.
TLDR
DBPs may be reduced by engineering and behavioral means, such as applying new oxidation and filtration methods, reducing bromide and iodide in the source water, increasing air circulation in indoor pools, and assuring the cleanliness of swimmers.
Environmental mass spectrometry: emerging contaminants and current issues.
TLDR
This biennial review covers developments in environmental mass spectrometry over the period of 2004-2005 and will highlight new areas and discuss representative papers in the areas of focus.
