Dissolved organic matter (DOM) has recently been shown to reduce the transformation rate of various aqueous organic contaminants submitted to oxidation by excited triplet states, apparently by inhibiting the transformation of oxidation intermediates. The main goals of the present study were to evaluate in more detail the effect of concentration and type of DOM on the triplet-induced transformation rate of four selected organic compounds and to check for an analogous inhibition effect in the… CONTINUE READING
