Title: Manganese dioxide as a catalyst for oxygen-independent atrazine dealkylation

Abstract

The herbicide atrazine is widely distributed in the environment, and its reactivity with soil minerals is an important issue. We have studied atrazine degradation on the surface of synthetic {delta}-MnO{sub 2}(birnessite) using UV resonance raman spectroscopy and gas chromatography. The products are mainly mono and didealkyl atrazine. Atrazine disappearance is rapid {tau}1/2 {approx} 5 h at 30C and independent of whether O{sub 2} is present or not.
