E-beam degradation of bisphenol A(BPA) was carried out,under reductive condition of ethanol-water solution and oxidative condition of acetonitrile-water solution.The degradation efficiency is higher in oxidative condition than that in reductive condition,and increases with the dose but decreased with increasing initial concentration.The BPA radiolysis follows the pseudo-first-order kinetics.Adding H_2O_2,or neutral condition,does not benefit BPA degradation in oxidative conditions.Pulsed radiolysis was used to investigate mechanism of the BPA radiolysis.The rate constant for BPA reaction with OH(1.85×10~(10) L·mor~(-1)·s~(-1)) is about an order of magnitude higher than that with e_(aq)~-(1.80×l0~9 L·mor~(-1)·s~(-1)).The degradation products were analyzed by ion chromatograph.Smaller molecules such as formic acid and acetic acid were detected,indicating that ~-OH attacks the BPA molecule.The work is of significance for the practical E-beam treatment of waste water containing BPA.
