ADVANCED OXIDATION/REDUCTION PROCESSES TREATMENT FOR AQUEOUS PERFLUOROOCTANOATE (PFOA) AND PERFLUOROOCTANESULFONATE (PFOS): A REVIEW OF RECENT ADVANCES
Trojanowicz, M., A. Bojanowska-Czajka, I. Bartosiewicz, and K. Kulisa.
Chemical Engineering Journal 336:170-199(2018)

Recent advances in methods for decomposition of PFOA and PFOS are reviewed, with particular attention to methods based on oxidation and reduction of target pollutants. The review considers photolytic and photocatalytic methods; electrochemical processes as well as sonolytic and radiolytic methods with the use of ionizing radiation; wet chemical oxidation methods; ozonation; and Fenton processes. Where possible, comparisons of mechanisms of occurring transformations and efficiency in terms of time required for decomposition and energy consumption are provided.
