Research overview:
Formation of carcinogenic- and mutagenic substances by chlorine treatment for water purification is a serious issue, and safer and effective method of disinfection to substitute use of chlorine is being demanded. Therefore we assess safety of substituting disinfectants including ozone, chlorine dioxide, chloramine, and ultraviolet rays from viewpoint of mutagenicity to find out safer method of disinfecting treatment.
