On the removal of IPMP from water with UVA/chlorine – First research paper to acknowledge watertop.

A research paper by Maria Antonopoulou et al. was published in the journal Science of the Total Environment.

The study evaluated the UV-A/Chlorine process, a promising advanced oxidation process (AOP), for the removal of 2-isopropyl-3-methoxy pyrazine (IPMP), a widely reported compound in the literature that causes unpleasant taste and odor when present in water at or below the ng L−1 level. It was found that the process was efficient in removing of IPMP in ultrapure and drinking water. Scavenging experiments highlighted the significant role of various reactive species (e.g. HO*, ClO*, Cl*, Cl2-*). In addition, the role of HO* was further verified by Electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR).

This paper is the first publication to acknowledge WaterTOP.
