Halamines are compounds containing N-CI or N-Br structures and widely used as disinfectants for swimming pools and recreation water. These compounds are able to oxidize many toxic compounds including pesticides. In recent years, halamine containing fabrics possessing durable and rechargeable biocidal properties were developed. A preliminary study of using the halamine fabrics in detoxifying certain pesticides has produced some interesting results, showing that several carbamates were decomposed rapidly by contact. Recent developments in halamine materials have resulted in fabrics containing different halamine structures such as imide, amide, and amine halamine, in an order of oxidative reactivity. This reactivity will also affect the power of detoxification of toxic chemicals. In order to systematically understand the detoxifying mechanisms of halamine fabrics, we have performed a pesticide detoxifying study using different halamine compounds. This presentation will discuss our latest results in this study.
