The large volume of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) produced by the oil sands industry in Northern Alberta, Canada, is an environmental concern. The toxicity of OSPW has been attributed to a complex mixture of naturally occurring acids, including naphthenic acids (NAs). Highly cyclic or branched NAs are highly biopersistent in tailings ponds, thus understanding structure-reactivity relationship for NAs is very important for OSPW reclamation. In this study, we hypothesized that large… CONTINUE READING
