    ..Differently from BMPOTFB, in the case of the other two studied ionic liquids the photodegradation would play a negligible role in environmental attenuation, with the possible exception of very shallow waters with low DOC. ..

    ..An important difference with the gas-phase nitration is that the radicals OH and NO3 are unlikely to play a relevant role in the nitration of naphthalene in aqueous solution...
