Since chlorobenzenes (CBs) were widely used as solvents in the chemical industry, they are the most frequently detected organic pollutants in groundwater. Their biodegradation is limited therefore, their removal needs different technologies based on adsorption or oxidation processes. Our research groups developed an electrochemical procedure for continuous production of ferrate [Fe(VI)] solution that can be mixed directly […]
