Removal of residual pharmaceuticals from aqueous systems by advanced oxidation processes
Over the past few years, pharmaceuticals are considered as an emerging environmental problem due to their continuous input and persistence to the aquatic ecosystem even at low concentrations. Advanced oxidation processes ...
Urban wastewater treatment plants as hotspots for the release of antibiotics in the environment: A review
Urban wastewater treatment plants (UWTPs) are among the main sources of antibiotics' release into various compartments of the environment worldwide. The aim of the present paper is to critically review the fate and removal ...
Solar Fenton and solar TiO2 catalytic treatment of ofloxacin in secondary treated effluents: Evaluation of operational and kinetic parameters
Two different technical approaches based on advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), solar Fenton homogeneous photocatalysis (hv/Fe2+/H2O2) and heterogeneous photocatalysis with titanium dioxide (TiO2) suspensions were studied ...
Analytical methods for tracing pharmaceutical residues in water and wastewater
The focus of environmental analysis and determination of chemicals in the environment has recently been extended from the more classical pollutants to new contaminant categories including pharmaceuticals. This is attributed ...
