Photochemical degradation of methylparathion (O,O,-dimethyl O-4 nitrophenylphosphorothioate) in the presence of humic acid between pH 2 and 7 was monitored by differential pulse polarography. Humic acid was not electro-active under the experimental conditions used in this study. Only the pesticide and its main degradation product at pH 2 exhibited(More)
The purity of synthetic carminic acid was quantified using potentiometric and conductimetric titrations, allowing its use as a secondary standard because there is not a primary one. Polarographic analysis (in ethanol-water 50:50, v/v) of carminic acid showed two reduction signals, each with a different number of electrons. The first reduction had more(More)
The objective of this study was to identify the organic compounds removed from the leachate when treated with Fenton-Adsorption by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in order to identify toxic compounds that could be harmful for the environment or human health. The physicochemical characterization of the raw leachate was carried out(More)
The generation of highly polluting leachate from Sanitary Landfills has prompted the development of technologies applicable to treatment of these liquids. The aim of this study was to determine the kinetics of adsorption of organic and inorganic matter contained in pre-treated leachate (by advanced oxidation by the Fenton reaction); after two adsorbents(More)
Photochemical degradation of methylparathion (O,O,-dimethyl O-4 nitrophenylphosphorothioate) in the presence of fulvic acid (FA) between pH 2 and 7 was studied by differential pulse polarography (DPP). Fulvic acid and its photoproducts were not electro-active under the experimental conditions used in this study, and only the pesticide exhibited(More)
A study was undertaken to determine the effect of Cu(II) in degradation of methylparathion (o,o-dimethyl o,4-nitrophenyl phosphoriotioate) in acid medium. Initial electrochemical characterization of Cu(II) and methylparathion was done in an aqueous medium at a pH range of 2-7. Cu(II) was studied in the presence of different anions and it was observed that(More)
A study was undertaken to determine the transformation kinetic of methylparathion (O, O, -dimethyl O-4 nitrophenylphosphorotioate) in the presence of Fe(III) between pH 2 and 7. The Fe(III) was not electroactive under the conditions used in this study, and polarographic signals were exhibited by methylparathion and main degradation product only. Data(More)
Kinetic studies of endosulfan photochemical degradation in controlled aqueous systems were carried out by ultraviolet light irradiation at lambda = 254 nm. The photolysis of (alpha + beta: 2 + 1) endosulfan, alpha-endosulfan and beta-endosulfan were first-order kinetics. The observed rate constants obtained from linear least-squares analysis of the data(More)
