Abstract:

Chemical oxidation is a treatment technology that uses powertul chemical oxidizers to destroy organic contaminants. Typical oxidizers used in chemical oxidation processes include ozone, hydrogen peroxide, chlorine, and potassium permanganate. The chemical reaction products are usually simple organic compounds, such as carboxylic acids, andor inorganic compounds, such as carbon dioxide, water, and simple inorganic complexes e.g., chloride salts, in the case of chemical oxidation treatment of chlorinated solvents. jg p.13 14
