Here is the details of Chemical Oxidation system
- In the case of chemical oxidation systems (H2O2 and O3), the degradation of pollutants is a result of the direct attack of the oxidants on the pollutant molecules.
- Ozone is a very powerful agent that react with most species containing multiple bonds.
- Hydrogen peroxide is a weak acid and has been found to be effective in the degradation of compounds requiring less stringent oxidation conditions.
- These oxidations are simple and the mechanisms only require an efficient contact of oxidant with the pollutant ion/molecule.
