In this study, sulfate radical-based oxidation of an alcohol ethoxylate (AE) was explored by the persulfate (PS)/UV-C process. Poly(oxyethylene)(4)laurylether, commercially known as Brij30®, was used as a model AE. PS/UV-C oxidation of aqueous Brij30® (8-20 mg/L) was performed at initial PS concentrations varying between 0.50 and 6.50 mM and at initial pH values of 3.0 and 6.0. Results indicated that an increase in both initial PS and Brij30® concentrations did not have a significant effect on… 


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.
Advanced oxidation of the commercial nonionic surfactant octylphenol polyethoxylate Triton™ X-45 by the persulfate/UV-C process: effect of operating parameters and kinetic evaluation
Treatment results showed that the performance of S2O2−8/UV-C was comparable to that of H2O/ UV-C oxidation for the degradation and mineralization of OPPE.
Peroxymonosulfate-Co(II) oxidation system for the removal of the non-ionic surfactant Brij 35 from aqueous solution.
The main identified by-products from surfactant degradation were: (a) low molecular weight organic acids; (b) aldehydes and formates with shorter ethoxy chain than Brij 35; (c) alcohol ethoxylates carrying hydroxyl groups bonded to Ethoxy chain.
Efficient removal of endosulfan from aqueous solution by UV-C/peroxides: a comparative study.
Results of this study suggest that UV-C-based AOPs are potential methods for the removal of pesticides, such as endosulfan and its by-products, from contaminated water.
Comparison of sulfate and hydroxyl radical based advanced oxidation of phenol
Abstract UV-C photo-assisted persulfate (PS), hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2 ) and peroxymonosulfate (PMS) oxidation processes were evaluated and compared for aqueous phenol degradation. The effect of
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.
Degradation Photoinduced by Fe(III): Method of Alkylphenol Ethoxylates Removal in Water
The photoinduced degradation of an alkylphenol ethoxylate (APE) (Igepal CA 520) by Fe(III) in aqueous solution has been investigated. A complete characterization of the commercial product showed the
Photochemical treatment of tyrosol, a model phenolic compound present in olive mill wastewater, by hydroxyl and sulfate radical-based advanced oxidation processes (AOPs).
Overall, UV/PS process was the most effective for TSL degradation and mineralization in the presence or absence of common water constituents and showed the highest TOC removal of ∼35%.
Degradation of the nonionic surfactant Triton™ X-45 with HO and SO4- – Based advanced oxidation processes
Abstract In the present study the nonionic surfactant Triton ™ X-45 (TX-45), an octylphenol polyethoxylate, was treated by persulfate ( S 2 O 8 2 - )/UV-C process involving the intermediacy of
Oxidative degradation of TMAH solution with UV persulfate activation
Abstract Tetramethylammonium hydroxide (TMAH) is an alkaline, neuronal toxic, and chemically stable compound; furthermore, it is widely used in the high-tech industry as a developing agent. Disposal
