© 2017 In present study, the characteristics of dissolved organic matter (DOM) from aquaculture wastewater and its interaction to 4-chlorophenol (4-CP) was evaluated via a spectroscopic approach. According to EEM-PARAFAC analysis, two components were derived from the interaction samples between DOM and 4-CP, including humic-like and fulvic-like substances for component 1 and protein-like substances for component 2, respectively. The fluorescence intensity scores of two PARAFAC-derived components decreased with increasing 4-CP concentration. Synchronous fluorescence coupled to two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy (2D-COS) implied that DOM fractions quenched different degrees and occurred in the order of fulvic-like and humic-like fractions > protein-like fraction. Moreover, the quenching mechanisms were mainly caused by static quenching process. It was also found from Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy that the main functional groups for interaction between 4-CP and DOM were O–H stretching and C[dbnd]O stretching vibration. The obtained results provided a spectroscopic approach for characterizing the interaction between organic pollutant and DOM from aquaculture wastewater.
