- ... Electrochemical degradation of aqueous solutions containing antibiotic amoxicillin (AMX) has been extensively studied in an undivided electrolytic cell using a sub-stoichiometric titanium oxide (Ti4O7) anode, elaborated by plasma deposition. Oxidative degradation of AMX by hydroxyl radicals was assessed as a function of applied current and was found to follow pseudo-first order kinetics. The use o ...

- ... The degradation of two organic pollutants (amoxicillin and diclofenac) in 0.1 mM aqueous solutions was studied by using advanced oxidation processes, namely ozonation, photolysis, photolytic ozonation, photocatalysis and photocatalytic ozonation. Diclofenac was degraded quickly under direct photolysis by artificial light (medium-pressure vapor arc, λexc > 300 nm), while amoxicillin remained very s ...
