    • Abstract


      The present review deals with the possibilities of water purification by UV-light, solar energy in combination with catalysts (e.g. n-TiO2), as well as by using ionizing radiation (e.g. high energy electrons or γ-rays). The various methods are illustrated by typical examples concerning the degradation of aliphatic and aromatic halogenated pollutants in water. Some probable reaction mechanisms initiated by light or ionizing radiation are also given.
