The application of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) for the treatment of wastewater is hindered by scavenging of the hydroxyl radical (HO*) by effluent organic matter (EfOM). This scavenging is directly proportional to the second-order reaction rate constant between EfOM and HO* (kEfOM-HO*). To understand the kinetics of this reaction as a function of the subcomponents of EfOM, four wastewater samples were fractionated by ultrafiltration into distinct apparent molecular weight (AMW… CONTINUE READING
