Ultraviolet treatment and biodegradation of dibenzothiophene: Identification and toxicity of products.

Biodegradation of pollutants often results in incomplete mineralization and formation of degradation products with unknown chemical and toxicological characteristics. Ultraviolet (UV) irradiation, a common technology used in water and wastewater treatment, may help reduce aqueous concentrations of degradation products produced during biological treatment… CONTINUE READING
