Sažetak
Since the conventional wastewater treatment has proven to be ineffective for a number of pharmaceutical compounds, there is a high concern about their ever-increasing release into the aquatic environment. To mitigate this problem, advanced wastewater treatment technologies, such as advanced oxidation and membrane filtration, are often necessary to reduce the emissions to acceptable levels and/or to minimize the possible overall ecotoxicity of the effluents. Therefore, the aim of this work was to examine the removal of two opioid analgesics, tramadol and methadone, using ozonation. The experiments were performed in three different matrices, including pure water, phosphate buffer and secondary effluent from the Central wastewater treatment plant of the city of Zagreb. The removal rate of opioid analgesics was systematically studied as a function of ozone concentration, pH and matrix used to dissolve target compounds. The determination of the remaining concentration of selected compounds as well as identification of transformation products formed during the experiment were performed by ultra-performance liquid chromatography/quadrupole-time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The experiment showed that ozonation at an ozone dosage of 0.05 - 0.5 mg/L completely removed both opioid compounds in less than 5 min in pure water and phosphate buffer solution, providing that pH of the ozonation medium was higher than 7. The elimination of opioids was significantly slowed down at acidic conditions, which indicated the importance of the amino group deprotonation for an efficient reaction with ozone. Elimination of selected compounds in secondary effluent was much slower than in organic-free water matrices, reaching 91.1% and 99.1% in the time period of 10 minutes for tramadol and methadone, respectively. Reason for the lower elimination percentage is ozone depletion by reaction with other organic compounds present in the secondary effluent. The removal of parent compounds was associated with formation of two main transformation products characterized by m/z values of 250 and 280 for tramadol and 278 and 294 for methadone. The most abundant transformation products of tramadol and methadone were tentatively identified as tramadol N-oxide and EDDP, respectively.
