The presence of pharmaceutical compounds in surface waters is an emerging environmental issue. This study investigated the photodegradation of acetaminophen (ACTP) in secondary effluent of a sewage treatment plant (STP) under simulated sunlight irradiation. ACTP can be quickly photodegradated in STP effluents, the degradation reaction was fitted well into… CONTINUE READING
