An overview of relevant literature summarizes the use of single or combined reagent chemical oxidation processes that offer insight into oxidation-reduction chemistries potentially capable of PFAS degradation. Based on the literature review, bench-scale treatability tests were designed and performed to establish optimal conditions for the formation of specific free radical species, including superoxide and sulfate radicals, using varied combinations of oxidants, catalysts, pH buffers, and heat to assess PFAS treatment by chemical oxidants.
