Abstract: A significant portion of the unidentified disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in chlorinated drinking water can be attributed to high molecular weight (MW)-chlorinated DBPs (above 500 Da) that may have adverse health effects. In this work, issues on the formation, adsorption and separation of high MW-chlorinated DBPs were investigated by introducing radioactive (36)Cl into humic substance samples. The results show that the amount of high MW-chlorinated DBPs during chlorination decreased with the increase of contact…
