Glossary entry:Chemical Oxidation (EURODEMO)
Meaning in EUGRIS: Chemical reduction/oxidation typically involves reduction/oxidation (redox) reactions that chemically convert hazardous contaminants to compounds that are nonhazardous, less toxic, more stable, less mobile, or inert. Redox reactions involve the transfer of electrons from one compound to another. Specifically, one reactant is oxidized (loses electrons) and one is reduced (gains electrons). The oxidizing agents used for treatment of hazardous contaminants in soil include ozone, hydrogen peroxide, hypochlorites, potassium permanganate, Fenton's reagent (hydrogen peroxide and iron), chlorine, and chlorine dioxide.
