Conventional methods for water disinfection, especially chlorination, have a lot of disadvantages and should be perfected or substituted with safer and more efficient methods. One of the possible solutions to this problem is the application of sorbents with high disinfection efficacy. In this study, the opportunity of producing sorbents with biocidal properties based on non-oxidizing biocides and anion exchange resins (AERs) was investigated. A wide range of different type of AERs were tested for the ability to sorb biocides (dibromonitrilopropionamide (DBNPA) and polyhexamethyleneguanidine (PHMG)) and to exert disinfection activity. Most suitable AERs for production of biocidal sorbents were outlined.
