Water Depollution Control : A Gateway to Reaction Monitoring and Analytical Chemistry

We present here an experimental session for undergraduate students, based on the reaction monitoring of the degradation of an organic pollutant (para-nitrophenol) by a Fenton-like reaction, catalysed by magnetite particles.
During the session, students realized a follow-up of the reaction by Gas Chromatography with an internal standard, and by UV-Visible spectrophotometry.This session was a good starting point to numerous discussions about analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry.
