Bromate with 887 Professional UV/VIS Detector and 886 Professional Thermostat/Reactor according to ISO 11206

Main document

Bromate is a disinfection byproduct generated by ozonation during drinking water purification. It is undesirable, because it is a suspected human carcinogen. Draft ISO 11206 describes its determination by IC with UV detection after post-column reaction. Bromate oxidizes iodide in acid solution to iodine. This forms with iodide the triiodide (I3-) which absorbs at 352 nm.
