PER PRIMERA VEGADA ES PUBLICA CÓM ELIMINAR COCAÏNA DE L'AIGUA

Damià Barceló, investigadors de l'IDAEA, de la Plataforma Solar d'Almeria i de la King Saud University publiquen un article on es descriu per primera vegada cóm eliminar cocaïna de l'aigua.

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.
