Fen·ton re·ac·tion

1. the use of H2O2 and ferrous salts (Fenton reagent) to oxidize α-hydroxy acids to α-keto acids or to convert 1,2-glycols to α-hydroxy aldehydes;
2. the formation of OH·, OH-, and Fe3+ from the nonenzymatic reaction of Fe2+ with H2O2; a reaction of importance in the oxidative stress in blood cells and various tissues.

When supercoiled pBR322 plasmid DNA (form I) was exposed to Fenton's reagent (FeS[O.sub.4] and [H.sub.2][O.sub.2]), form I converted to nicked pBR322 plasmid DNA (form II) by single-strand breaks as shown in lane 2 in Figure 4.
Several researches [8-11] have been carried out to degrade the dyes photochemically using heterogeneous catalyst as cyclic ketones, and Fenton's reagent [12] and different techniques such as fluorescence [13], cyclic voltammetry [8] and stopped flow spectroscopy [14] were used to investigate the reduction of dyes.
