The photo-Fenton reaction, the reaction of photoproduced Fe(II) with H2O2 to form the highly reactive hydroxyl radical (OH*), could be an important source of OH* in sunlit natural waters. To determine if the photo-Fenton reaction is significant in mildly acidic surface waters, we conducted experiments simulating conditions representative of natural freshwaters using solutions of standard fulvic acid and amorphous iron oxide at pH 6.0. A probe method measuring 14CO2 produced by the reaction of… CONTINUE READING
