The sonolytic degradation of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) has been investigated at ultrasonic frequency of 20 kHz. The observed pseudo-first-order rate constant decreased from 1.25 x 10(-4) to 5.32 x 10(-5) s(-1) as the concentration of MTBE increased from 2.84 x 10(-2) to 2.84 x 10(-1) mM. The rate of degradation of MTBE increased with the increase of the power density of ultrasonicator and also with the rise in reactor system temperature. In the presence of oxidising agent, potassium… CONTINUE READING
