Abstract

Oxidation of paracetamol in aqueous solution was studied by using pulsed corona discharge as a means for advanced oxidation. Pulse repetition frequency, the delivered energy dose, and oxidation media were the main parameters evaluated. The pulsed corona discharge treatment appeared to be effective in oxidation of paracetamol: complete degradation of target pollutant together with partial mineralization was achieved at moderate energy consumption; oxidation proceeds faster in alkaline media, the fastest oxidation rate was observed in oxygen-enriched air. Low-molecular carboxylic acids were identified as the products formed in the reaction.
