The transformation and detoxification of halobenzoquinones (HBQs), a class of emerging disinfection byproducts (DBPs), was studied in the presence of amino acids (AAs). The reaction activity of three HBQs with AAs generally ranked as 2-chlorobenzoquinone (CBQ) < 2,6-dichlorobezoquinone (DCBQ) < tetrachloroquinone (TCBQ), consistent with their halogenation degree and the calculated electron affinity (EA) results. According to mass spectrometry and density functional theory (DFT) calculations… CONTINUE READING
