The photodegradation of two fluoroquinolone veterinary antibiotics, difloxacin (DIF) and sarafloxacin (SARA) has been explored for the first time in aqueous systems. The study was performed to evaluate the influence of pH, inorganics, humic substances, and other additives. The drugs followed first-order degradation kinetics in matrix free aqueous medium(More)
Fluoroquinolones like difloxacin (DIF) and sarafloxacin (SARA) are adsorbed in soil and enter the aquatic environment wherein they are subjected to photolytic degradation. To evaluate the fate of DIF and SARA, their photolysis was performed in water under stimulated natural sunlight conditions. DIF primarily degrades to SARA. On prolonged photodegradation,(More)
