dc.description.abstract The removal of the beta-lactam antibiotics (ceftriaxone and cefadroxil) through zero-valent copper nanoparticle (nZVC) was studied in this work. Excellent removal degrees (> 85%) were obtained for both analytes in only 20 min of reaction. Studies were performed in both oxic and anoxic conditions, and in the presence of t-butyl alcohol (TBA), an inhibitor of radicals. The results did not show significant changes. Therefore, the hydroxyl radicals are not the main species responsible for the removal. Total organic carbon cefadroxil analysis indicated a removal of 57% after 180 min of reaction. Studies involving Cu+ indicated that probably these are the principal species responsible for the removal of antibiotics. Kinetic studies have shown that two-phase reaction occurred in the antibiotics removal process and both phases followed pseudo-first order kinetic model. The first mechanism is related to the antibiotics degradation by Cu+ species and the second mechanism is related to the antibiotics adsorption by hydroxides/oxides of Cu2+ species. en
