Short summary
Contamination of water resources is continuously compounded as a result of rapid industrial development, particularly in heavily populated urban areas. This work proposes a water treatment method from endocrine disrupting resin Bisphenol A by means of photodegradation and oxidation techniques. The methodology was developed after many lab experiments, and we believe that our results will support future research on water purification techniques from organic contamination products.
