Kinetics of the Ozonation of Tetrabromobisphenol-A in Wastewater
The kinetics of TBBPA degradation by ozonation in semi-batch reactor was studied. The reaction rate constants of TBBPA with O3 and •OH were measured by means of direct ozone attack and competition kinetics, and the values of which were 6.10 l/(mol•s), 4.8×109 l/(mol•s), respectively. Results of kinetic studies showed that TBBPA degradation by ozonation under the different conditions tested followed the pseudo-first-order. The values of apparent rate constant of TBBPA degradation increased with the increase of ozone dosage and pH, but decreased with the increase of initial TBBPA concentration.
