- ... The fate of the pharmaceutical drugs tenoxicam, piroxicam and meloxicam in river water is evaluated here for first time. So, biological, photochemical and thermal degradation assays have been conducted to estimate their degradation rates and know their degradation products. Results indicated that the direct sunlight irradiation, without any protection, promoted a fast degradation of the oxicams wh ...
