Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A RESEARCH PROGRAM FOR DETERMINING THE FEASIBILITY OF AN INNOVATIVE METHOD FOR REMOVING CW AGENTS FROM CONTAMINATED SURFACES. THE PROPOSED TECHNIQUE IS EXPECTED TO BE APPLICABLE TO A WIDE VARIETY OF CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS AND MAY ALSO DESTROY BIOLOGICAL AGENTS. THE METHOD IS BASED ON THE PHOTOCHEMICAL GENERATION OFVERY SHORT REACTIVE, SHORT-LIVED OXIDIZING RADICALS FROM CERTAIN PRIMARY OXIDANTS. EVIDENCE IS PRESENTED FOR THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS CONCEPT WHEN APPLIED TO DESTRUCTION OF LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF ORGANICS COMPOUNDS IN BULK SOLUTION. THE PROPOSED STUDY WOULD DETERMINE THE APPLICABILITY TO TREATMENT OF CONTAMINATED SURFACES, PROVIDE INSIGHT INTO THE MOST EFFECTIVE DELIVERY MECHANISM, AND START TOEXPLORE OPTIMIZATION OF SYSTEM CHEMISTRY, WHICH IS OFTEN QUITE COMPLEX.
