publicado na web em 15/04/2019 The objective of this investigation was to identify and quantify the presence of Bisphenol-A (BPA) in raw and treated leachates with the Fenton-adsorption process. BPA is used as a monomer to produce epoxy resins and it is a compound classified as endocrine disruptor. For this reason, it is important to quantify its presence in effluents that will be disposed to the environment to avoid damage to human health and other organisms. The Fenton-adsorption process

The quantification of BPA was carried out by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry, using liquidliquid and liquid-solid extraction methods. A recovery percentage study was carried out to validate the extraction methods. Finally, it was found that the leached evaluated contained >12 mg L -1 and at the end of the treatment its concentration was <0.0174 mg L -1 .
