- ... Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum toxic herbicide that has entered the environment. Advanced oxidation processes efficiently remove various persistent organic contaminants. In particular, generation of sulfate radicals based on catalytic sulfite oxidation is promising, but previously used Fe(II/III) catalysts have reduced activity at pH above 4 due to precipitative deactivation. Therefore, here we te ...
