The advanced oxidation of paracetamol (PAM) promoted by TiO(2)/UV system in aqueous medium was investigated. Monitoring this reaction by HPLC and TOC, it was demonstrated that while oxidation of paracetamol is quite efficient under these conditions, its mineralization is not complete. HPLC indicated the formation of hydroquinone, benzoquinone, p-aminophenol(More)
The formation and structure of inclusion complexes of αand β-cyclodextrins with 2-chlorophenol (2CP), 3-chlorophenol (3CP), 4-chlorophenol (4CP), 2,4-dichlorophenol (24DCP), 2,6-dichlorophenol (26DCP) and 3,4-dichlorophenol (34DCP) have been studied by UV-VIS and 1H NMR spectroscopy. Both cyclodextrins were found to form 1 : 1 inclusion complexes. Binding(More)
The degradation of pyridine, widely used in the synthesis of vitamins, drugs, rubber chemicals, herbicides and pesticides, can be photocatalyzed by semiconductor catalysts. Since zinc oxide promotes faster pyridine photocatalytic oxidation reactions than TiO2, the former appears to be a suitable alternative to TiO2 for water treatment contaminated with(More)
Pyrostegia venusta (Ker Gawl.) Miers is used in traditional medicine for the treatment of vitiligo, dysentery, immoderate menstrual flow, common diseases of the respiratory system, and for the treatment of genital infections. This work describes the effect of different explants, media components, and antioxidants on callus development from P. venusta. The(More)
2,4-Dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) is considered a priority pollutant due to its high toxicity. Therefore, it is urgent to develop technologies for the disposal of this pollutant. Various remediation processes have been proposed for the elimination of 2,4-DCP in contaminated water, however, most of them involve high costs of operation and maintenance. This study(More)
