The hydroxyl radical ((•)OH) is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents, able to react unselectively and instantaneously with the surrounding chemicals, including organic pollutants and inhibitors. The (•)OH radicals are omnipresent in the environment (natural waters, atmosphere, interstellar space, etc.), including biological systems where (•)OH has an important role in immunity metabolism. We provide an extensive view on the role of hydroxyl radical in different environmental compartments… CONTINUE READING
