Muneer, Mohammad and Boxall, Colin (2008) Photocatalyzed degradation of a pesticide derivative glyphosate in aqueous suspensions of titanium dioxide. International journal of photoenergy. ISSN 1110-662XFull text not available from this repository.
The photocatalytic degradation of a herbicide derivative, glyphosate [(N-phosphonomethyl) glycine] has been investigated in aqueous suspensions of titanium dioxide at different pH values. This compound was found to degrade more efficiently under alkaline pH, where no adsorption takes place on the surface of the catalyst in the dark. The main degradation route involves the cleavage of the P-C bond giving rise to sarcosine and glycine as the intermediate products formed during the photooxidation process.
