    Abstract: Conventional treatment of textile wastewater such as biological treatment discharges will no longer be tolerated and identified as non-biodegradable. Advanced processes such as adsorption and advanced oxidation hold great promise to provide alternative for better treatment and protection of environment. In this study, adsorption process is carried ... Show More

    Abstract: The kinetics of oxidation of tryptophan by platinum(IV) was investigated in aqueous perchlorate solutions in the presence of silver(I) catalyst at a constant ionic strength of 2.0 mol dm-3 and at 25°C. The progress of the reaction was followed spectrophotometrically. The reaction did not proceed in the absence of the catalyst. The catalyzed reactio... Show More
