By Killian, Paul F Bruell, Clifford J; Liang, Chenju; Marley, Michael C The persulfate anion (S^sub 2^O^sup 2-^^sub 8^) is a strong oxidant with a redox potential of 2.01 V. However, when mixed with iron (II), it is capable of forming the sulfate radical (SO^sup - ^^sub 4^sup .^^) that has an even higher redox potential (E[degrees] = 2.6 V). In these studies the sulfate radical was investigated to determine if it was a feasible oxidant for the destruction of BTEX and PAH compounds found in...
