Abstract

■ The photolysis kinetics appeared to be a function of functional group, halogen type(s) and number(s) ■ Nitrogenous DBPs had higher photolytic rates than carbonaceous DBPs ■ Photolytic rate: Nitroso (N-NO) > nitro (NO2) > nitrile (C≡N) > carbonyl (C=O) > carboxyl (COOH) ■ Near complete removals (99%) of nitrosamines were observed within 1 h of sunlight exposure ■ Within one group of DBPs, the photolysis kinetics usually increased with increasing number of halogens. 2011
