Low-molecular-weight (LMW) carbonyl compounds, e.g. formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and the a-keto acid glyoxylate, were produced in a wide variety of natural waters upon irradiation with sunlight. Production rates were linearly related (r2 > 0.98) to initial absorbance at 300 nm and initial fluorescence (360/460 nm) in all waters tested. Photochemical production was also linearly related to loss (photobleaching) of absorbance and fluorescence during irradiation, irrespective of irradiation time… CONTINUE READING
