In this work, a commercial formulation of chlorpyrifos in water was treated using the UV/H2O2 process. To the best of our knowledge, the degradation of commercial formulations of CP in water by this method has not been so widely studied. The optimal amount of oxidizing agent to be incorporated and the behavior of the degradation rate of chlorpyrifos were studied. Total organic carbon was measured in order to evaluate the mineralization rate of the treated mixture. In addition, the toxicity during the photodegradation was evaluated by employing the Microtox acute toxicity test.
