In aqueous solutions of Chloramine T (CAT), caused by dissociation, hydrolysis and disproportionation processes, seven different kinds of molecules emerge (HOCl, OCl-, R-NCl-, R-NHCl, R-NCl2, R-NH2, and R-NH- [R = CH3-C6H4-SO2]). Their equilibrium concentrations have been calculated using an iteration process (polynom of 4th degree) as a function of cCAT (0.003-10%) and pH (0-14): The (absol.) concentration of "free chlorine" ([HOCl] + [OCl-]) is surprisingly low showing a maximum concentration… CONTINUE READING
