Abstract Samples of North Carolina aquatic fulvic acid were ozonated in a neutral buffer at several ozone/carbon ratios, and the reaction mixtures were characterized by using total organic carbon (TOC) and UV-visible absorbance analysis, XAD-8 chromatography, and ultrafiltration. Results show a large initial ozone consumption with loss of TOC and UV-visible absorbance by the fulvic acid solution followed by a slower rate of ozone consumption and decrease in TOC and UV-visible absorbance at higher doses. Exclusion chromatography and ultrafiltration show an increase in smaller sized materials. The authors conclude that ozone initially and rapidly attacks sensitive nucleophilic sites on the molecule. At higher doses slower cleavage reactions produce structural changes in the macromolecule. (Copyright (c) 1986 American Chemical Society.)
