Recent sampling projects in greater Cairo, Egypt have indicated the presence of trihalomethanes and other chlorine disinfection by-products (DBPs) in the public water supply at levels that are periodically in excess of regulatory limits. Therefore, hydrophobic-hydrophilic fractionation of natural organic matter (NOM) was performed for raw Nile River water… CONTINUE READING
