Solar photocatalytic ozonation has been used to oxidize the herbicide clopyralid in aqueous solution. Activated carbon used as a catalyst was characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) images showed the presence of irregular cavities and pores, which have different sizes and shapes, with a great surface area of BETand a high pHpzc. The adsorption kinetics was found to follow the pseudo-second-order kinetic mode. Catalyst stability was tested by means of consecutive reuse cycles. After five cycle of reuse the adsorption efficiency reached 75% of the clopyralid removal.Clopyralid elimination kinetic by direct ozonation has been studies. The system O3/AC/Daylight significantly improves clopyralid and mineralization rate abatement if compared to runs conducted in the absence of radiation and/ or activated carbon. Clopyralid total abatement was achieved in less than 30 min when 0.5 g/L of activated carbon and under solar radiation (300-800 nm) were used. Thus, TOC removal in 180 min treatments increased from 20 to about 90 % in O3 and O3/OSAC/Daylight, respectively, under similar operating conditions.
