A novel analytical method is reported for the determination of monochloroacetic acid, dichloroacetic acid, trichloroacetic acid, monobromoacetic acid, and dibromoacetic acid. These are the five haloacetic acids (HAAs) for which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) has regulated a maximum contamination level (MCL) of 0.060 mg L−1for the sum of their concentrations in drinking waters. Themethod uses in situ aqueous derivatization, followed by microextraction by packed sorbent (MEPS… CONTINUE READING
