Abstract:The destruction of methyl tert-butylether (MTBE) in water in the presence of chloroform has been studied using 60Co gamma irradiation. Distilled water solutions at three different concentrations of the individual solutes MTBE and CHCl3 were irradiated for various times to provide dose destruction information. Then, the irradiation of a mixture of MTBE (at two different concentrations) and CHCl3 (at one concentration) was conducted. A kinetic model was used incorporating recently determined bimolecular rate con…
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.
