The effect of surfactants (cationic, anionic, and nonionic) on the direct photochemistry of selected chlorophenol antimicrobials in aqueous solution has been investigated. The inclusion of the starting aromatics into micelles markedly directs the reaction towards a cleaner process (mainly photoreduction), contrasting with the variety of processes observed when the irradiation is carried out in neat water. This could have some implications from the environmental point of view because such paths may be significant in natural aquatic systems.
