Inorganic DBPs


Inorganic DBPs include chloramines and cyanogen chloride. Inorganic chloramines include monochloramine (NH2Cl), DICHLORAMINE (NHCl2) and TRICHLORAMINE (NCl3) and are generated from the reaction of hypochlorite with ammonia and amino-compounds that originate from sweat and urine of the swimmers. TRICHLORAMINE is relatively volatile and partitions easily from water into air.54
