Representative Target Contaminants

Problematic chemicals degraded by TAML driven oxidation include endocrine disruptors (EDCs), chlorinated pollutants, phenols, dyes, and chemical warfare agents. EDCs destroyed include the active ingredient in the birth control pill—ethinylestradiol.

Industrial targets include thiophosphate and organochlorine pesticides, the odorous and colored compounds in pulp mill effluent, and - among other things - the recalcitrant sulfur compounds in diesel and gasoline.

A TAML enabled oxidation rapidly kills hardy pathogens in water including anthrax-like spores, the hardiest of all.

Fe-TAML + peroxide has excellent potential for dye transfer inhibition and stain removal in laundry products and for increasing the whiteness, brightness and freshness of the washed fabrics.
