Photochemical oxidation of alcohol ethoxylate ( Brij 30 ® ) by PS / UVC process

  title={Photochemical oxidation of alcohol ethoxylate ( Brij 30 {\textregistered} ) by PS / UVC process},
  author={Ece D. Gamsiz Uzun and Olmez Hanci},
In the present study, photochemical oxidation of an alcohol ethoxylate (AE) was experimentally explored. Poly(oxyethylene) (4) lauryl ether, commercially known as Brij30 ® , was selected as a model AE. Persulfate (PS)/UVC oxidation of aqueous Brij30 ® (20mg/L) was investigated at a wide range of initial PS dosage varying between 0.55.0 mM and at two initial reaction pH values (3.0 and 6.0). The results obtained for both initial pH values indicated that increasing PS dosage did not have a…

A comparative study of HO•- and SO4•--based AOPs for the degradation of non-ionic surfactant Brij30.
Brij30 removal was very fast and complete via both H2O2/UV-C and PS/ UV-C treatments, accompanied with significant mineralization rates ranging between 74 and 80%, and Toxicity assessed by Vibrio fischeri, was found to be similar to that of the original Brij30 solution.
The interaction "light, Fe(III)" as a tool for pollutant removal in aqueous solution: degradation of alcohol ethoxylates.
The degradation photoinduced by iron (III) could be an efficient method of AEs removal in water and implies a major .OH radicals attack on the polyethoxylated chain.
Abstract Biodegradation of two fatty alcohol ethoxylates: surfactant C12E10 (C 12 with an average 10 oxyethylene subunits (EO)) and Marlipal 1618/25 (C 16–18 with an average 25 EO) were tested under
Sulfate radical-based degradation of polychlorinated biphenyls: effects of chloride ion and reaction kinetics.
Investigation of the effect of chloride ion on the degradation of 2,4,4'-CB (PCB28) and biphenyl (BP) by persulfate, based on the produced SO(4)(·-) showed that chloride ion could influence the selectivity of radical species and their distribution, and increase the concentration of the sum ofradical species.
Comparison of the reactivity of ibuprofen with sulfate and hydroxyl radicals: An experimental and theoretical study.
Comparisons of degradation kinetics of neutral ibuprofen (IBU) by •OH and SO4•- at pH3 in UV/H2O2 and UV/persulfate systems are experimentally examined to help select preferred radical oxidation processes for optimal TrOCs removal in engineered waters.
Identification of Sulfate and Hydroxyl Radicals in Thermally Activated Persulfate
Thermal activation can induce persulfate (S2O82−) degradation to form sulfate radicals (SO4−•) that can undergo radical interconversion to form hydroxyl radicals (HO•) under alkaline conditions. The
Sulfate radical-based oxidation of fluoroquinolone antibiotics: Kinetics, mechanisms and effects of natural water matrices.
Results clearly show that the water matrix influenced the degradation of FQs appreciably, a phenomenon that should be taken into consideration when applying SR-AOPs for remediation of soil and groundwater contaminated by F Qs.
Sulfate radical-advanced oxidation process (SR-AOP) for simultaneous removal of refractory organic contaminants and ammonia in landfill leachate.
It is demonstrated that SR-AOP is a promising landfill leachate treatment method because it appears to be more advantageous over hydroxyl radical (OH∙)-based advanced oxidation processes (HR-A OPs) because OH∙ almost does not oxidize ammonia.
Inhibition of hydroxyl radical reaction with aromatics by dissolved natural organic matter
Reaction of aromatic compounds with hydroxyl radical is inhibited by dissolved natural organic matter (NOM). The degree of inhibition is significantly greater than that expected based on a simple
Occurrence and risk screening of alcohol ethoxylate surfactants in three U.S. river sediments associated with wastewater treatment plants.
A weight-of-evidence risk assessment in three streams found that the parameters contributed to the abundance of biota rather than the predicted risk from AE and FA, highlighting the need to carefully consider the procedures for environmental risk assessment of naturally occurring compounds such as FA.
