This work deals with elucidation of bisphenols transformations occurring in the processes of TiO2 photocatalysis and sensitized photolysis. A special attention is paid to the clarification of the mechanisms of the reactive oxygen species generation. In particular, the work investigates the sources and mobility of photocatalytically generated OH radicals by isotopic labeling experiments and explores the role of natural organic matter as a sensitizer in the sunlight photolysis of bisphenols.
