Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the role of chlorine dose, temperature and contact time on the formation of THMs as a result of chlorination of swamp water. All samples were extracted using purge-and-trap (PAT) technique followed by determination of trihalomethanes by gas chromatography-electrolytic conductivity detectors (GC-ELCD). Pearson correlation was applied during data analysis. Concentration of trihalomethanes increased progressively as chlorine dose increased from 2 mg/L to 8 mg/L with strong relationship between them. The relationship between temperature and trihalomethanes was weak. The reaction rate of trihalomethanes formation increased as temperature increased from 4 °C to 35°C but showed a decreased at 25°C. Increase in contact time from 4 hours to 12 hours showed strong relationship with trihalomethanes except bromodichloromethane. This result indicated that presence of trihalomethanes in water was exclusively due to chlorination.
