Paper Abstract

Upon exposure to radiation in the presence of humic substances, phenol can be transformed by the mechanisms of direct and indirect photolysis. The addition of the humic fraction containing humic and fulvic acids to the aqueous phenol solution causes the efficiency of phenol degradation to decrease. The most efficient phenol degradation in the aqueous solution upon exposure to radiation at 222 nm is observed in the presence of fulvic acid.
