Evaluation of Combined Radiation for the Treatment of Lamivudine and Zidovudine via AOP

See — The presence of pharmaceutical contaminants in nature is an environmental problem generating increasing concerns. Due to this, it is necessary to evaluate treatments that are capable of degrading these contaminants, such as the advanced oxidation processes (AOP). In this work, the photoperoxidation and photo-Fenton AOP were applied to degrade a mixture of the drugs lamivudine and zidovudine, in aqueous medium and synthetic effluent (SE). To this end, a bench reactor (UV-C; UV-A and sunlight irradiations) was built. The AOP treatments efficiency was evaluated by ultraviolet/visible spectrophotometry. The tests involved the application of the irradiations individually and…
