The oxidation of nitrite and nitrous acid to *NO2 upon irradiation of dissolved Fe(III), ferric (hydr)oxides, and nitrate has previously been shown to enhance phenol nitration. This allowed the proposal of a new role for nitrite and nitrous acid in natural waters and atmospheric aerosols. This paper deals with the interaction between hydrogen peroxide, a(More)
This paper studies the transformation of phenol and of 3,5-dichlorophenol (3,5-DCP) upon UVA irradiation of anthraquinone-2-sulfonate (AQ2S). Light-excited AQ2S is able to oxidise phenol, 3,5-DCP, and AQ2S. Transformation reactions do not proceed at a significant extent in the absence of molecular oxygen, in which case recombination reactions of initially(More)
The phototransformation of phenol in aqueous solution was studied with different quinoid compounds, which are usually detected on atmospheric particulate matter: 2-ethylanthraquinone (EtAQ), benzanthracene-7,12-dione (BAD), 5,12-naphthacenequinone (NQ), 9,10-anthraquinone (AQ), and 2,6-dihydroxyanthraquinone (DAQ). All the studied quinones were able to(More)
