Use of Photo-Fenton reagent for photocatalytic degradation of reactive orange 13 in aqueous solution
Author(s): Anil Kumar Swarnkar, Bhupendra Kumar Sharma
Abstract: In textile industries, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are widely used for degrading and removing color from dye baths which allow wastewater reuse. Degradation of Reactive Orange 13 by Photo-Fenton reagent has been investigated under irradiation of visible light in aqueous solution. The parameters that influence degradation such as concentration of Reactive Orange 13, FeSO4, H2O2, light intensity and pH of the experimental solution were studied. The optimum condition for the photocatalytic degradation of dye was established. The decolorization rate fitted to pseudo- first order kinetics with respect of dye concentration.
