Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Influence of dissolved organic matter in the free-radical-induced destruction of hydrazines in water: Kinetics of hydroxyl radical reactions
by Kleinman, Jonathan L., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 62; 1493138
Abstract (Summary)

The kinetics of the free-radical reaction of asymmetric hydrazines (R 1R2NNH2), with hydroxyl radicals and hydrated electrons were investigated as a function of substituent chain length and morphology in aqueous solution. In addition, these same radical kinetics were established for two different commercial dissolved organic matter compounds, Suwannee River Fulvic Acid (SRFA) and Elliot Soil Humic Acid (ESHA) as a model of real-world waters. Lastly, the kinetics of two hydrazine target molecules, 1-aminopiperidine and 1-aminohomopiperidine, were then used to investigate the role of model dissolved organic matter species concentration as a mimic of real-world water contaminant removal using advanced oxidation processes.
