 en Photo-catalytic Degradation of Chlorendic Acid: 1. Degradation Products
BOISA, NDOKIARI

Abstract

The photo-catalytic degradation of chlorendic acid in the presence of TiO2 was conducted to investigate the reaction pathways and possible degradation products as a means of assessing the environmental legacies of polyesters that are designed with both chlorendic acid and TiO2 chemicals. Comparison of liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry spectra of chlorendic acid and degradation solutions suggests HCl, H2O and chlorendic acid anhydride as the main products of the degradation process.

Keywords
