In the aquatic environment and in engineered water treatment systems, organic contaminants can undergo oxidative and photochemical transformations. For an overall risk assessment, the toxicity of the resulting transformation products has to be investigated. In this study, the toxicity of degradation products of diuron (3-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea) formed during its degradation by four (photo)oxidative processes (direct phototransformation, triplet-induced photosensitized oxidation… CONTINUE READING
