Abstract To optimize water treatment processes, a better understanding of the mechanisms and factors affecting the formation and distribution of trihalomethanes (THMs) is needed. Recent studies indicate that alpha-methylbenzylamine (alpha-MBA) can act as a precursor for THMs. The chapter discusses the formation of THMs as a function of the variables, bromide and pH at a chlorine to alpha-MBA mole ratio of 1.0. The formation curves for the total THM as carbon closely follow those of natural waters, indicating that alpha-MBA is a good candidate for studying THM formation rates.
