Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) constitute a promising technology for the treatment of wastewaters containing pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) and especially endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs). Data concerning the degradation of PPCPs and EDCs by means of AOPs reported during the period January 2000-May 2007 are evaluated in this work. Ozonation was the oxidation process most studied, gives the best expectatives to be applied with successful results.
