In this study, the performance of LaCoO (LCO) catalytic ozonation was evaluated comprehensively, including the degradation efficiency of benzotriazole (BZA) as a typical emerging pollutant, toxic bromate reduction and the disinfection by-products (DBPs) precursors removal ability in effluent organic matter (EfOM), as well as EfOM reactive activity in catalytic ozonation. Additionally, the reduction of toxic halogenated by-products in (catalytic) ozonation was reported, which was not focused on previous researches before. Results showed that LCO catalytic ozonation improved the removal efficiency of BZA, UV and SUVA via enhanced HO· formation. Interestingly, LCO catalytic ozonation showed the ability on the reduction of aldehydes and toxic halogenated organic by-products. Moreover, the formed [trichloromethane (TCM)], [bromochloroacetonitrile (BCAN)] and [dichloroacetamide (DCAcAm)] decreased significantly in catalytic ozonation. Catalytic ozonation was also able to remove DBPs precursors to decline the formation of DBPs, such as TCM, bromodichloromethane (BDCM), trichloroacetonitrile (TCAN) and trichloronitromethane (TCNM). This process was involved in the transformation of EfOM in catalytic ozonation, which was confirmed by multi-spectrum methods, two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy (2D-COS) and hetero-spectral 2D-COS. In summary, LCO was shown to be an effective catalyst to improve the performance of the sole ozonation on the removal of emerging contaminants and DBPs precursors, as well as toxic by-products reduction. Additionally, the strategy of toxic by-products reduction in catalytic ozonation was proposed. Results indicated this technology was an important contribution on removal of refractory organics and formation of toxic by-products in water supply and wastewater treatment industry.

A highly toxic, colorless, nonflammable gas. It is used as a pharmaceutical aid and antioxidant. It is also an environmental air pollutant.
Substituted thioglucosides. They are found in rapeseed (Brassica campestris) products and related cruciferae. They are metabolized to a variety of toxic products which are most likely the cause of hepatocytic necrosis in animals and humans.
RNA that has catalytic activity. The catalytic RNA sequence folds to form a complex surface that can function as an enzyme in reactions with itself and other molecules. It may function even in the absence of protein. There are numerous examples of RNA species that are acted upon by catalytic RNA, however the scope of this enzyme class is not limited to a particular type of substrate.
Biological molecules that possess catalytic activity. They may occur naturally or be synthetically created. Enzymes are usually proteins, however CATALYTIC RNA and CATALYTIC DNA molecules have also been identified.
Damage to the heart or its function secondary to exposure to toxic substances such as drugs used in CHEMOTHERAPY; IMMUNOTHERAPY; or RADIATION.
