Development of bromine chemistry in controlling microbial growth in water systems

Development of bromine chemistry in controlling microbial growth in water systems

International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation 33(3): 245-253

Bromine chemistry is reviewed in both industrial and recreational water systems. The generation and application of hypobromous acid is examined in both the use of activated sodium bromide and organic bromine release agents such as bromo chloro dimethylhydantoin (BCDMH). The activity and efficacy of bromine is compared with chlorine in relation to haloamine formation and acid dissociation. The benefits of bromine on environmental grounds and its advantages on reduced vapour phase corrosion are also discussed.
