Abstract

A drastic increase in pharmaceuticals consumption has resulted in a high load of pharmaceuticals in wastewater, resulting in an obvious need for detoxification. Metamizol is a typical representative of an analgesic non-steroidal agent that hydrolyzes into 4-Methylantipyrine (4-MAA). In this article, we show some simple adsorption, oxidation and reduction experiments that can either collect or degrade 4-MAA and some of its related metabolism products. The main successful method in detoxifying these substances is shown to be reduction at moderate temperature.
