Bisphenol A (BPA) – an endocrine disruptor, degradation was studied using the following
systems: UV/H2O2 and UV/H2O2/TiO2. Optimum operating conditions were established for both
studied systems and experimental results showed that the two systems could be successfully used for
advanced degradation of BPA achieving degradation efficiencies for BPA of 99.99% in optimum
working conditions. The two systems were compared and both advantages and disadvantages of each
system were identified. Nine degradation intermediates were identified for BPA degradation in
UV/H2O2/TiO2 system and a possible degradation pathway was proposed.
