Photochemical Purification of Water and Air Advanced Oxidation Processes: Principles, Reaction Mechanisms, Reactor Concepts

Thomas Oppenländer
Wiley-VCH, Weinheim, 2002 (ISBN 3-527-30563-7)

While the treatment of water and exhaust gas using ultraviolet light offers both ecological and economic advantages, information on photo-initiated advanced oxidation technologies (AOTs) has been dispersed among various journals and proceedings until now. This authoritative and comprehensive handbook is the first to cover both the photochemical fundamentals and practical applications, including a description of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) and process engineering of suitable photoreactors. The author presents various real-world examples, including economic aspects and uses the IUPAC recommendations for nomenclature in photochemistry. The book’s many references to current scientific literature will facilitate research involving water and air industries. Throughout, over 140 detailed figures illustrate photochemical and photophysical phenomena.

Following is an excerpt from the foreword by James R. Bolton (president of Bolton Photosciences, Inc. and executive director of the International Ultraviolet Association): "Professor Oppenländer is well qualified to write about the AOPs/AOTs since he has contributed to this literature in a very significant manner. This book will be of considerable value to graduate students, science and engineering faculty, scientists, process engineers and sales engineers in industry, government regulators, and health professionals."
