Formation of Trihalomethanes During Chlorination and Determination of Halogenated Hydrocarbons in Drinking Water
In 1974, Rook reported that chloroform and bromine-containing trihalomethanes (THM) were present in chlorinated water at much higher concentrations than in raw water. It was proposed that these trihalomethanes were produced by action of chlorine on humic substances comprising natural organic color in raw water.
