Abstract:The photoreactions of aromatic compounds were investigated in aqueous dispersions of alpha-FeOOH(goethite)/H(2)O(2) at neutral pHs. It was found that aromatic compounds could undergo rapid decomposition and mineralization (even to 100% yield) in the presence of both alpha-FeOOH and H(2)O(2) under UV irradiation, and the degradation rates of the organics were related to their sorption ability of the surface of alpha-FeOOH and were in the following order: salicylic acid approximately m-hydroxylbenzoic acid>p-hyd…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
