Abstract

Efficient methods for the removal of natural organic matter (NOM) in waters have emerged. Among these are advanced oxidation processes (AOPs). These processes include O3/H2O2, O3/UV, UV/H2O2, TiO2/UV, H2O2/catalyst, Fenton and photo-Fenton processes, and ultrasound. This chapter presents an overview of the recent research studies dealing with AOP methods for the removal of NOM and related compounds from drinking water. ...
