Analysis, occurrence and control of chloro-s-triazine endocrine disrupting chemicals in drinking water
"Chloro-s-triazine is a general term for a suite of triazine compounds including atrazine (ATZ), simazine (SIM), propazine (PROP), deethlatrazine (DEA), deisopropylatrazine (DIA), and didealkylatrazine (DDA), which have a common chloro-group on their chemical structures. Recent research has shown that ATZ and SIM, along with PROP, DEA, and DDA, may pose a common adverse health effect to human beings in terms of the endocrine disrupting mechanism. New regulations on chloro-s-triazine compounds based on their endocrine disrupting effect are currently under consideration by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. In this work, a series of projects were launched to investigate the occurrence of these chloro-s-triazine endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC) in natural waters, how well the conventional water treatment plants treat these EDCs and how those contaminants can be controlled once they do enter water treatment plants"--Abstract, leaf iv.
