Solar photocatalysis has been implemented and evaluated in the pollutant treatment at pilot scale in heterogeneous reactors using Ti[O.sub.2]-P25, among which the following are highlighted: methylene blue [1], dichloroacetic acid, chlorinated compounds mixtures, phenol [2], 4-chlorophenol [3], dyes [4], pesticides and herbicides [5-9], and emerging contaminants [10].
We attain electrical conductivities in excess of 50 S/cm when polyaniline films are exposed to dichloroacetic acid. Subjecting commercially available poly(ethylene dioxythiophene) to the same treatment yields a conductivity as high as 250 S/cm.
HAA5 include monochloroacetic acid, dichloroacetic acid, trichloroacetic acid, monobromoacetic acid, and dibromoacetic acid.
The label might refer to the negatively charged dichloroacetate anion related to dichloroacetic acid or the acid itself.
