The rising concentration of organic micro-pollutants (OMPs) in water resources has become a major concern for aquatic ecosystems and human health. Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), based on ultraviolet (UV) photolysis and photochemical reactions, have been suggested for the degradation of various micropollutants present in water and wastewater. However, the application of these methods on large scale is limited due to the long treatment times. Here we evaluate the efficiency of high-intensity pulsed light treatment (HIPL) for the degradation of organic compounds in aqueous conditions. A solution containing 11 OMPs was treated with short (
