Whenever natural water or humic substances are chlorinated significant concentrations of haloacetic acids (HAAs) are produced. The presence of HAAs in drinking water are suspected to have an adverse health effect on humans. To control HAAs in drinking water, analytical techniques should be developed. EPA method 552.1, which was originally developed for the measurement of mono-, di-, and tri-chloroacetic acids, was modified to include the six brominated HAAs, which are also formed during water disinfection with chlorine in the presence of bromine ion.
