Abstract

Fluorescence spectroscopy is an effective and simple method of characterizing dissolved organic matter (DOM). With the development of new treatment technologies, such as anionic magnetic ion exchange (MIEX) resin, detailed monitoring is important to understand the impact on the full profile of DOM. Past work has proven the effectiveness of MIEX in removing DOM, but the full impact of MIEX on DOM is an active research area. This study compares the dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentration, specific ultraviolet absorbance (SUVA) and fluorescence index (FI) of water samples from four different sources (surface water, synthetic water, ground water, and waste water) before and after MIEX treatment. After MIEX treatment, the DOC and SUVA parameters decreased across all waters, whereas the FI increased. 2010
