Study Progress on Treatments of the Gasoline Additive Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether Contamination

XU Xiang-Rong,GU Ji-Dong (Department of Ecology & Biodiversity,The University of Hong Kong,Pokfulam,Hong Kong,China)  
Methyl ten-butyl ether is a widely used gasoline additive.Its presence in the environment causes a widespread pollution and poses a serious threat to human health.Current literature on the treatments of methyl tert-butyl ether contamination,including advanced oxidation processes and microbial biodegradation,is reviewed.The advanced oxidation technologies include heterogeneous photocatalytic oxidation,UV/H2O2 oxidation,conventional ozonation and ozone/hydrogen peroxide,ultrasound irradiation and sonolytic degradation in the presence of ozone,Fenton's reagent and UV-assisted Fenton's reagent,reductive activation of dioxygen as well as r radiolysis of H2O.Microbial biodegradation of MTBE involves both the aerobic and anaerobic metabolism.
