Abstract:

Destruction of TNT, RDX, HMX, TAX, and SEX in aqueous solution by corona oxidation has been studied in the batch mode. The munition compounds are individually degraded by the Innova process within a 2-hour time period and can be effectively degraded in a multicomponent system. Degradation products were not identified, but evidence is presented for both oxidation and reduction processes.
