Abstract

Eighteen environmentally significant hetereocycles were subjected to dilute aqueous solutions of chlorine, chlorine dioxide, and chloramine to examine those chemical transformations anticipated during water renovation. The products included those of chlorination and oxygenation, with chlorine dioxide giving oxygenation products. Chloramine was generally quite unreactive except at low pH where a significant presence of hypochlorous acid may dictate the increase in chlorination products.
