Advanced Oxidation Processes for Environmental Remediation; Elucidation of the Reaction Mechanisms; Identification of Transformation Products; Identification of Transient Reactive Species
Advanced oxidation process (AOPs) such as UV-based processes, sonolysis and γ-irradiation for environmental detoxification. Focus is given on:
- (a) novel approaches for understanding the molecular-level interactions and pathways of ROS-driven oxidation of less studied, emerging pollutants such as cyanotoxins and water taste & odor compounds (T&O),
- (b) Identification of transformation products and toxicity assessment after application of different ROS-producing technologies for water treatment, and
- (c) novel technological knowledge of the efficiency of ROS-producing treatments to degrade target pollutants in water.
