Advanced oxidation technologies for potentiation of the effects of hydrogen peroxide:

Photo activation by ultraviolet radiation (UV)

In the photoactivation process of H2O2 with ultraviolet radiation, the generation of the hydroxyl radical is as follows:
 
H2O2 + u → 2 OH-
 
DadosTecEN-PH-UV
H2O2 + UV Radiation
 
Contaminant + [ H2O2 + u (UV 254 nm) ] → Decontamination 
 
Contaminant + [ H2O2 + Fe (aq) ] → Decontamination + Fe(OH)3 (s)
 
 

Fenton Process

In the Fenton process, the generation of hydroxyl and regeneration of Fe2+ occurs as follows:
 
Fe2+ + H2O2 → Fe3+ + OH- + OH-

Fe3+ + H2O2 → Fe2+ + H+ + OOH-

Fenton Process
 
Contaminant + [ H2O2 + Fe (aq) ] → Decontamination + Fe(OH)3 (s) 

Activation with ozone (Peroxone System)

In the so called Peroxone system, the generation of hydroxyl is as follows:
 
H2O2 + 2 O3 → 3 O2 + OOH-
