Degradation of pentachlorophenol with zero-valence iron coupled with microwave energy.

The objective of this research is to study the degradation of pentachlorophenol with zero-valence iron (Fe(0)) coupled with the use of microwave energy. The sample containing 1000 mg/L PCP solution was dosed with 0.5 g Fe(0) and then subject to 700 W microwave energy for 10s; 85% pentachlorophenol was noted to be removed. If the microwave treatment time was… (More)
