Bromocarbons over the Coastal Area in Peninsular Malaysia

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article

Abstract

Concentration of bromoform (CHBr 3 ), dibromochloromethane (CHBr 2 Cl) and dichlorobromomethane (CHBrCl 2 ) in seawater was analysed to determine the concentrations at Cape Rachado, Negeri Sembilan (mangrove area) and Melawi Beach, Kelantan (coastal area) and factors that can influenced the concentrations. Seawater samples have been identified and quantify by using purge-and-trap concentrator (P&T) and gas chromatography equipped with electron captured detector (GC/ECD). Mean value of CHBr3 at Cape Rachado is 0.010 mmol/L and Melawi Beach is 0.001 mmol/L. The major brominated halocarbons at Cape Rachado and Melawi Beach is CHBr3 with range value 0.009 - 0.012 mmol/L and 0.0004 - 0.0021 mmol/L, respectively. Concentrations of CHBr3, CHBr2Cl and CHBrCl2 at Cape Rachado (mangrove area) are higher than Melawi Beach (coastal area) because the located at seaweed bed and adjacent to mangrove swamp.
