Summary of "Photodegradation of tefuryltrione in water under UV irradiation: Identification of transformation products and elucidation of photodegradation pathway."

Photodegradation is an important abiotic degradation process in the aquatic environment. In this study, the photodegradation of tefuryltrione in aqueous solution was investigated under UV-Visible irradiation. Effects of carbonate (CO), bicarbonate (HCO), nitrate (NO), hydrogen phosphate (HPO), potassium (K), and ammonium (NH) on the photodegradation kinetics of tefuryltrione were evaluated. Results showed that tefuryltrione photodegradation was increased by HCO, CO, and NO in the range of 0.1-10 mmol L; decreased by HPO; and insignificantly affected by K and NH. Twelve main transformation products (TPs) were separated and identified on the basis of mass spectrum data assigned by elemental-composition calculations, comparison of structural analogs, and available literature. A tentative photodegradation pathway was further proposed depending on the identified TPs and their kinetic evolutions. Results indicated that TP 1 was generated by the hydroxyl that substituted for chlorine, TP 2 was formed by the cleavage of the ether bond of tefuryltrione, and TPs 3-6 were formed by the breakage of the CC bond of the keto moiety of tefuryltrione. Further, TPs 9-12 were formed by the rearrangement of tefuryltrione-photodegradation products. These findings are highly important for elucidating the environmental fate of tefuryltrione in aquatic ecosystems.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Irradiation of one half or both halves of the body in the treatment of disseminated cancer or widespread metastases. It is used to treat diffuse metastases in one session as opposed to multiple fields over an extended period. The more frequent treatment modalities are upper hemibody irradiation (UHBI) or lower hemibody irradiation (LHBI). Less common is mid-body irradiation (MBI). In the treatment of both halves of the body sequentially, hemibody irradiation permits radiotherapy of the whole body with larger doses of radiation than could be accomplished with WHOLE-BODY IRRADIATION. It is sometimes called "systemic" hemibody irradiation with reference to its use in widespread cancer or metastases. (P. Rubin et al. Cancer, Vol 55, p2210, 1985)

Raw and processed or manufactured milk and milk-derived products. These are usually from cows (bovine) but are also from goats, sheep, reindeer, and water buffalo.

External or interstitial irradiation to treat lymphomas (e.g., Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's lymphomas) and lymph node metastases and also some autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.

The discarding or destroying of liquid waste products or their transformation into something useful or innocuous.

Irradiation of the whole body with ionizing or non-ionizing radiation. It is applicable to humans or animals but not to microorganisms.
