Abstract: In this work, the photooxidation of bisphenol A (BPA), a suspected endocrine disruptor (ED), in water in the presence of ferric and oxalate ions was investigated in a concentric reactor under a 125 W high-pressure mercury lamp (lambda> or = 365 nm). The photooxidation efficiencies were dependent on the pH values and ferric/oxalate concentration ratios (Fe(III)/Ox) in the water, with higher efficiency at pH 3.50+/-0.05 and Fe(III)/Ox 10.0/120.0 micromol l(-1). The initial rate of photooxidation increases with i…
