Aqueous chlorine and monochloramine are the two most widely used disinfectants of drinking waters in the U.S. The reactions of these two disinfectants with various organic functional groups in order to predict which classes of chemical substrates might be most likely to undergo transformations under drinking water conditions are reviewed. For those reactions for which kinetic data are available, the half-lives of substances containing these functional groups is estimated. Where possible, known reaction mechanisms are identified and structure activity relationships are discussed.
