Study on the reaction of chlorophenols in room temperature ionic liquids with ionizing radiation

Kimura, Atsushi; Taguchi, Mitsumasa; Kondo, Takafumi*; Yang, J.*; Yoshida, Yoichi*; Hirota, Koichi

Halogenated organic chemicals such as polychlorodibenzo-p-dioxin, polychlorobiphenyls and hexachlorobenzene are toxic pollutants characterized by persistence and accumulation to the body of aquatic animals. These pollutants are not readily treated by advanced oxidation treatments such as ozone/UV, ozone/hydrogen peroxide and so on. The ionizing radiation, however, is expected as a good technique for treating halogenated organic compounds because it can homogeneously and quantitatively produce reactive species that can oxidize target substances. Room temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) have unique properties such as nonvolatile, nonflammable, high polarity, and wide electrochemical window1). We paid attention to the combination method of ionizing radiation and RTILs as a new environmental conservation technology for the treatment of halogenated chemicals.
