Abstract
The ability of various exudates of marine algae to produce chloroform during solution chlorination was investigated. D-Mannitol generated amounts that increased markedly with increase in pH, whereas glycerol under similar conditions yielded little product. L-Proline exerted an inhibiting effect. The mechanism of the D-mannitol reaction is believed to proceed via formation of a ketolactone which undergoes ring opening by chloride, followed by the classical haloform process.
