Background Literature on DBPs


This intended to be a source for researchers interested in disinfection byprdoucts, especially those who wish to write journal articles, theses and dissertations on the subject. The area is divided into:

Reviews - General Occurrence - Regulated DBPs - Non-regulated DBPs - Precursors - Treatment

- Residual Decay -Biodegradation - Abiotic Degradation - Models - Indoor - Methods - Health Effects

In each case major publications and unpublished summaries are directly linked to this page. Where substantial primary literature exists in focused journal articles, these are accessed through a secondary link.
