The main objective of this study was to systematically examine the roles of dissolved organic matter characteristics, pH and bromide in the formation and speciation of dihalogenated acetic acids, the major class of haloacetic acids (HAA) formed during chloramination. This chapter also summarizes briefly the potential reaction routes of HAA formation, HAA formation kinetics, and the effect of quenching agent use during chloramination.
