Abstract

A method for the decontamination of water, with concomitant hydrogen formation, is herein described. Formaldehyde is an impurity that is often present in industrial wastewater in significant quantities. The formaldehyde decomposition is possible with a series of ruthenium catalysts which are accessible within minutes via microwave-assisted synthesis.
