A series of heterogeneous catalysts capable of fully reducing perchlorate to chloride in water at room temperature using hydrogen gas have been developed. These systems represent the first examples of heterogeneous catalysts capable of efficiently reducing perchlorate in conditions amenable with drinking water treatment applications. The primary catalyst systems are all comprised of a Re(VII) or Re(V) precursor supported on activated carbon decorated with Pd nanoparticles.Perchlorate as a Pollutant Although perchlorate has been manufactured on a vast industrial scale in the US since the end of WW II, it has only recently come to light as a ... The report suggested a reference dose (RfD) of 0.0007mg/kg/day.
