The phototransformation of triclosan has been a matter of longstanding interest due to both its prevalence in the environment and the discovery of 2,8 dichlorodibenzodioxin as a photoproduct. In this study, photolysis of triclosan resulted in several primary photoproducts including: 2,8-dichlorodibenzodioxin (4 %), 4,5'-dichloro-[1,1'-biphenyl]-2,2'-diol (10 %), 5-chloro-2-(4-chlorophenoxy)phenol (0.5 %), and 2,4-dichlorophenol (7 %). Trapping studies using d(8)-isopropanol showed deuterium incorporation in 5 chloro 2 (4 chlorophenoxy)phenol, providing strong evidence for the involvement of organic radicals in this reaction. Density functional calculations of the excited states of triclosan support the involvement of a radical intermediate in the mechanisms responsible for the dioxin, biphenyl, and phenoxyphenol photoproducts. The pathways for C-Cl bond cleavage and cyclization reactions are discussed.
