Waste Water and Lift Station Odor Control
Indirect Determination of Hydroxyl Radicals in Fine Particle Mist Generated from an Odor Control Technology via HPLC
Size distribution analysis of microsized water particle mist generated from an odor control technology showed the major- ity of particles to be in the low micron range. The indirect detection and determination of hydroxyl radicals generated by their reaction with benzene to produce phenol was performed through UV-Vis spectrophotometry (UV-Vis) and high perfor- mance liquid chromatography (HPLC). These techniques gave verification of the presence of hydroxyl radical species in the water samples collected via this odor control technology.
