Abstract
An abbreviated discussion of the fundamental chemistry of drinking water disinfection byproduct formation is presented. The most vexing problems known to be associated with oxidants other than free chlorine are summarized. Ozone, monochloramine, chlorine dioxide, and the most important associated chemical byproducts of each are briefly reviewed. Chemical issues relevant to the formulation of the USEPA Disinfection Byproduct Rule (to be promulgated in 1995) are summarized.
