The formation of nonvolatile chloroorganics produced during the aqueous chlorination of humic substances was followed qualitatively and quantitatively. The effects of reaction time, NaOCl to C ratio, pH, and source of humic material were studied with respect to the quantitative formation of chloroform, dichloroacetic acid, trichloroacetic acid, and chloral hydrate. Other gas-chromatographable chloroorganics formed from the chlorination of fulvic acid were produced at levels below these four… CONTINUE READING
