AN454: Analysis of Haloacetic Acids in Drinking Water by IC-MS/MS
DescriptionHaloacetic acids (HAA) are disinfection byproducts when water is chlorinated to remove microbial content. The chlorine reacts with naturally occurring organic and inorganic matter in the water, such as decaying vegetation, to produce by-products that include HAAs. Five of the nine HAA species are currently regulated by the EPA as there might be an increased risk of cancer associated with long-term consumption of water containing levels of HAAs that exceed 0.6 mg/L. We describe an IC-MSMS method that provides separation of all nine HAAs addressed in the EPA methods (552.1, 552.2, and 552.3).
