1. Oxidation of benzoic acid by heat-activated persulfate: Effect of temperature on transformation pathway and product distribution (2017)
The degradation of benzoic acid by heat-activated persulfate was studied.
Temperature affects the distribution of benzoic acid transformation products.
The mechanism through which benzoic acid is transformed was established.
The roles of temperature in heat-activated persulfate systems are discussed.

Activated persulfates (S2O82−) could degrade CA only under certain conditions.
In homogeneous (i.e., solid-free) solutions, CA could be oxidized by •OH and SO4•-.
In heterogeneous solutions, CA was removed mainly by adsorption to solids.
Adsorption of CA retarded/inhibited the oxidation of CA, especially at acidic pH.
CA desorption after S2O82− is depleted may cause the CA concentration to rebound.
3. Reduction of chlorendic acid by zero-valent iron: Kinetics, products, and pathways (2020)
Zero valent iron (ZVI) removed chlorendic acid (CA) from solution by adsorption and degradation.
The degradation of CA took place via stepwise reductive dechlorination reactions.
Ten products of CA transformation were detected, nine of which were identified.
The degradation of CA occurred under a wide range of water chemistry conditions.
ZVI is promising for the remediation of CA-contaminated groundwater.
