Two agricultural antibiotics used heavily in agriculture, sulfamethazine and sulfadiazine, were degraded in an aqueous system by anodic Fenton treatment (AFT), an advanced oxidation technique that has been shown to be effective in degrading various pesticides but has not been applied to antibiotics. The effects of the H(2)O(2)/Fe(2+) ratio, Fe(2+) delivery rate, and initial contaminant concentration on the degradation of sulfamethazine by AFT were determined. The optimal H(2)O(2)/Fe(2+) ratio… CONTINUE READING
