Abstract

To treat PCP-contaminated soil, abiotic methods for PCP degradation have been developed, where heme or powder hemoglobin acts as a catalyst and hydrogen peroxide as an oxidant. Degradation of PCP had the first-order kinetics, and rate coefficients, k, were 0.073 and 0.104/day for heme and hemoglobin, respectively, indicating that the hemoglobin was a more efficient catalyst than heme. Approximately 96 % of the initial PCP was degraded at day 35. Thus, hemoglobin might be recommended as the catalyst of choice, since it is much less expensive than heme.
