|Abstract:||Mercury pollution is mainly caused by Au and Ag mining. However, mercury is still the main component in various products and used in numerous industrial processes, e.g., as catalysts in the petrochemical industry. A discussion on the degradation of methyl mercury by OH radicals in natural waters covers organic forms of mercury and their impact on human health; mercury methylation and demethylation; degradation of methylmercury by UV light irradiation; pseudo first-order kinetic profile of methylmercury degradation by OH radicals; and possible pathways for methylmercury degradation. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 221st ACS National Meeting (San Diego, CA 4/1-5/2001).|
