Abstract The use of chlorine for water renovation and disinfection has been questioned because of the reaction of active chlorine species with organic compounds present in water to form products that may be biologically harmful, among the organic species known to be present during chlorination are the polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), a class of ubiquitious compounds that may be the precursors to at least a portion of the undesirable products. Some of the products obtained upon aqueous chlorination of various PAH compounds have been reported by our laboratory and other. However, the kinetics of chlorination of PAH in water have not been thoroughly investigated. In the present article we will describe a detailed study of the kinetics and product distributions of phenanthrene in the pH range 3-10 and fuorene and fluoranthene in the pH range 3-5.
