The degradation of aqueous solutions containing Glyphosate (Roundup herbicide) can be realized by oxidative advanced processes. Processes based on the formation of hydroxyl radical, such

as Ti/UV andO3/pH 10, were effective for the degradation of glyphosate and its degradation intermediates, AMPA, after a short treatment time.
