Abstract
Degradation of atenolol (ATL) was achieved using combination of UV and chlorine treatment (UV/chlorine). Factors affecting ATL degradation, such as pH, chlorine dosage, common anions and natural organic matter (NOM), were systematically studied. ATL degradation could be described by the pseudo-first-order reaction kinetics. Combination of UV-254 nm and 100 μM of chlorine at pH 7 demonstrated 93.5% removal of 10 μM of ATL within 20 min.
