超高分解能質量分析と機械学習を用いた消毒副生成物の形成機構と前駆体NOM分子組成の予測 / Formation mechanism of disinfection by-products and prediction of precursor NOM molecular composition using ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry and machine learning


Disinfection by-products (DBPs) can be generated from natural organic matter (NOM) by chlorination. In this study, we developed algorithm to identify the molecular formula of deuterium-labeled DBPs by using ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry in order to clarify the reaction mechanism of DBPs during chlorine disinfection of NOM-containing waters. The results showed that most of the DBPs originated from a common molecular formula, and that the relative contributions of electrophilic addition and substitution reactions to DBP formation depended on the halogen species involved in the reactions, and that the acidity of the hypohalogenic acid species could affect the reaction pathway. Furthermore, a machine learning model was developed to predict the formation of DBP from the molecular characteristics of NOM. The model showed high prediction accuracy, suggesting that the carbon oxidation state and other factors are important in the formation of I-DBP.
