The oxidative reactions of bisphenol A (BPA) with radiolytically generated hydroxyl radicals were studied in both deionized water and tertiary treated wastewaters. In deionized water, bisphenol A reacts with the hydroxyl radical by addition to the aromatic ring, k = 6.9 × 109 (±0.2) M−1 s−1, to eventually form the prominent, long-lived, hydroxylated intermediate product. In contrast, in tertiary treated water solutions, although the initial hydroxyl radical addition reaction occurs, the hydroxylation is averted, and a different mechanistic pathway ensues. The removal constant for the hydroxyl radical reaction with BPA is 0.45 ± 0.04 μmol/kGy, corresponding to an overall degradation efficiency of 76%.
