NDMA and Other Nitrosamines (Fact Sheet)

Source: TrojanUV

The nitrosamines group consists of a large number of compounds formed by various combinations of amines and nitrogen compounds. Each has the foundational structure N-N=O. There are hundreds of individual nitrosamine compounds, and nearly all are carcinogenic to animals in animal studies. A handful are of concern to the water treatment community, with perhaps the best known being NDMA.
