Bisphenol A (BPA) is an environmental endocrine disruptor widely present in the soil and sedimentary environment. In this study, we investigated the oxidative transformation of BPA by commercial and laboratory synthetic goethite. Both goethite samples effectively induced the transformation of BPA. The commercial goethite exhibited higher oxidation power towards BPA than the synthetic one. The transformation of BPA by goethite was pH dependent, showing that acidic conditions accelerated the… CONTINUE READING
