The Fenton process, one of several advanced oxidation processes, describes the reaction of Fe(II) with hydrogen peroxide. Fe(II) is oxidized to Fe(III) that reacts with hydrogen peroxide to Fe(II) and again initiates the Fenton reaction. In the course of the reactions reactive species, e.g. hydroxyl radicals, are formed. Conditions such as pH, ligand concentrations and the hydrogen peroxide/Fe(II) ratio may influence the OH radical yield. It could be shown that at pH < 2.7 and >3.5 the OH radical yield decreases significantly. Two ligands were investigated, pyrophosphate and sulfate. It was found that pyrophosphate forms a complex with Fe(III) that does not react with hydrogen peroxide and thus, the Fenton reaction is terminated and the OH radical yields do not further increase. The influence of sulfate is not as strong as that of pyrophosphate. The OH radical yield is decreased when sulfate is added but even at higher concentrations the Fenton reaction is not terminated.

Inorganic salts of HYDROGEN CYANIDE containing the -CN radical. The concept also includes isocyanides. It is distinguished from NITRILES, which denotes organic compounds containing the -CN radical.
A metabolite of TESTOSTERONE or ANDROSTENEDIONE with a 3-alpha-hydroxyl group and without the double bond. The 3-beta hydroxyl isomer is epiandrosterone.
A transmembrane-protein belonging to the TNF family of intercellular signaling proteins. It is a widely expressed ligand that activates APOPTOSIS by binding to TNF-RELATED APOPTOSIS-INDUCING LIGAND RECEPTORS. The membrane-bound form of the protein can be cleaved by specific CYSTEINE ENDOPEPTIDASES to form a soluble ligand form.
