Title & Authors
Comparison of chemical properties of Co(II) and Cu(II) Compounds with Bis-Phenol A(Endocrine Disrupter) Park, Chil-Nam;
The chemical behavior and properties of the redox state of environmental pollutants were investigated using electrochemical methods. Cyclic voltammograms were performed on the compounds to measure the variations in the redox reactions. Temperature and pH were established as influencing the redox potential and current. The electrode reactions were a mixture of quasi-reversible and irreversible Precesses, which changed according to the reaction current. Although the Co(BPA) and Cu(BPA) compounds were not found to dissociate in wastewater, they were very unstable(K=1.02).
