It is shown by calculation that highly reactive radicals can be generated by the photolysis of water molecules with vacuum ultraviolet radiation. The concentrations of the degradation products of water are calculated, and it is numerically shown that the aromatic chlorine-containing compounds found in liquid and gaseous media can be broken down by the products of the VUV photolysis of water molecules. It is numerically demonstrated that the products of the VUV photolysis of water molecules can be used for biological purposes.
