The degradation and mineralisation of (400 mL, 3.15 mM) aqueous solutions of 2-hydroxypyridine (2-HPY), a primary intermediate formed during the photolytic degradation of 2-chloropyridine (2-CPY), 2-bromopyridine (2-BPY) and 2-iodopyridine (2-IPY), was studied at 50 degrees C, under 254 nm UV irradiation in a range of conditions. The rate of 2-HPY(More)
2-Chloropyridine (2-CPY) has been identified as a trace organic chemical in process streams, wastewater and even drinking water. Furthermore, it appears to be formed as a secondary pollutant during the decomposition of specific insecticides. As reported in our previous work, 2-CPY was readily removed and slowly mineralised when subjected to ultraviolet (UV)(More)
The degradation of 2-chloropyridine (2-CPY) and its degradation primary product 2-hydroxypyridine (2-HPY) was studied by means of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation at 254nm. Photolytic and photocatalytic experiments were conducted on 2-CPY and 2-HPY aqueous solutions in a batch reactor with internal recycle in laminar and turbulent conditions at 50 degrees C in(More)
The photolytic destruction and mineralisation of 2-halogenated pyridines (2-HalPYs) was studied in a range of conditions by means of ultraviolet irradiation at 254 nm. In all cases pseudo-first order kinetics satisfactorily describe the degradation process. Key decomposition products were identified and primary reaction pathways are proposed. 2-HalPYs were(More)
