Abstract:A great deal of concern exists over the presence of potentially carcinogenic and/or mutagenic substances in drinking water supplies. The general analytical schemes currently applied to water are less suited than specific methods for the detection of certain classes of organic contaminants such as aromatic amines because of their reactivity. We have concentrated our efforts at developing analytical schemes by which we are able to reliably detect, separate, and quantitate trace levels of a number of aromatic and heterocyclic amines. Both liquid and gas chromatographic methods have been developed. The relative strengths and limitations of the methods are discussed. Field evaluations of the final methods were carried out and reported.
