Study on NDMA-FP prediction published in the journal Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology
ICRA researchers Josep Sanchís, Mira Petrovic and María José Farré have recently published the article “Prediction of NDMA formation potential using non-target analysis data: a proof of concept” in the renowned journal Environmental Science: Water Research & Technology.
NDMA is a hazardous DBP included in drinking water regulations. Anticipating its formation before drinking water treatment (i.e. chloramination) is essential in water quality management and DBP control. The study aims to predict the NDMA-FP of natural waters using predictive algorithms based on LC-HRMS non-target data, which overcome the limitations of both target analysis of NDMA precursors and batch-level chloramination tests.
