POR PRIMERA VEZ SE PUBLICA CÓMO ELIMINAR COCAÏNA DEL AGUA

Damià Barceló, investigadores del IDAEA, de la Plataforma Solar de Almeria y de la King Saud University publican un artículo donde se descrive por primera vez cómo eliminar cocaïna del agua.

Solar transformation and photocatalytic treatment of cocaine in water: Kinetics, characterization of major intermediate products and toxicity evaluation.
Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, vol. 104, Issues 1-2 (2011), 37-48.

The present manuscript describes for the first time the transformation and mineralization of cocaine (COC) in water (distilled water (DW) and synthetic municipal wastewater effluent (SWeff)) by natural solar irradiation and two solar photocatalytic processes: heterogeneous photocatalysis with titanium dioxide (TiO2) and homogeneous photocatalysis by photo-Fenton.
