This work deals with the chlorine dioxide (ClO(2)) reactivity with three representative beta-lactam antibiotics (penicillin, amoxicillin and cefadroxil) that can be present in natural aquatic resources. Due to the wide use of ClO(2) as disinfection agent our work is of interest to determine the fate of these antibiotics during the water treatment process. Our study shows that antibiotics react stoichiometrically with ClO(2) because increasing amounts of ClO(2) lead to increasing antibiotic… CONTINUE READING
