Modified Fenton's Reagent
Available from In-Situ Oxidative Technologies, Inc. (ISOTEC)
ISOTEC's modified Fenton's process is based on the fundamental principles of Fenton's chemistry. H.J.H. Fenton first demonstrated the use of Fenton's chemistry in 1894 by oxidation of tartaric acid using a soluble iron-catalyzed decomposition of dilute hydrogen peroxide under acidic conditions. The modified Fenton's process was developed with the fundamental goal of enhancing in situ treatment of soil and groundwater contamination using Fenton's chemistry while mitigating the negatives associated with application of Fenton's reagent in its conventional form (such as acidic pH, limited catalyst mobility, etc). The process generates powerful free radicals when the catalyst reacts with hydrogen peroxide.
