A thorough understanding of pathways can lead to predictability for the intermediate products of polyfunctional compounds. This concept applies well, for example, to the destruction of microcystins [1, 2], important drinking water contaminants released by cyanobacteria blooms; (ii) understanding of the chemical processes involved can lead to optimization of the operational or experimental conditions; and importantly; and (iii) the use of well-characterized partial oxidation reactions can lead to characterization of the catalyst or conditions themselves.
