  • Influence of pH and ozone on Sulfaquinoxaline ozonation 

    Urbano, Vanessa; Maniero, Milena Guedes; Pérez Moya, Montserrat; Guimarães, José Roberto (2015)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Ozonation was effective to degrade sulfaquinoxaline: more than 99% of efficiency was obtained using an ozone dose of 2.8 mg L-1 and pH 3. A design of experiments with two variables, pH and ozone dose, was used for planning. ...
