Results and discussion

Any other information on results incl. tables

A field study was conducted to validate the method and quantify DMSO concentration range in the three water pollution control plants (WPCPs) in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Results showed that, when a local chemical facility discharged, DMSO concentration could be as high as 12 mg/L in the influent to a WPCP. This would lead to the formation of  a toxic "canned corn" DMS odor during the treatment processes.
