Quantum yields of micropollutants were determined using a medium-pressure UV lamp. * This is the first report providing OH rate constants for the selected compounds. * Electrical treatment efficiency, as measured by EEO, was also investigated. * This paper predicts first-order degradation rates for micropollutants in pure water.
