Degradation of 2,7-dichlorodibenzo-p-dioxin by Fe(3+)-H(2)O(2) mixed reagent.

Fe(3+)-H(2)O(2) mixed reagent, but not Fe(2+)-H(2)O(2), was found to be capable of degrading 2,7-dichlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (DCDD). A reaction mixture of FeCl(3) (8 mM) and H(2)O(2) (1%) caused approximately 50% degradation within 6 h and >90% degradation within 24 h at 27 degrees C. Increasing the temperature remarkably stimulated degradation: at 70 degrees C, approximately 100% degradation was achieved within 15 min. When DCDD-treated model soil (5 micrograms/g) was conducted, approximately 100% of the DCDD was degraded within 30 min at 70 degrees C (both reagents were added every 10 min). These results suggest that Fe(3+)-H(2)O(2) mixed reagent may be a new tool for combating persistent environmental pollutants such as dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls.[1]
