PHOTOCHEMICAL TREATMENT OF BROMOTHYMOL BLUE WASTE WATER BY PHOTO- FENTON REAGENT

MUKESH KUMAR SHARMA AND MOHAN KUMAR SHARMA

Abstract

Oxidation of pollutants in waste water by photo-Fenton reaction has proven an eco-friendly and economical method. Oxidation of Bromo thymol blue, (an acid dye ) using photo-Fenton reagent was investigated under ambient conditions. The effect of different parameters like the concentration of ferric ion, bromo thymol blue and hydrogen peroxide, as well as pH, light intensity etc, on the reaction rate has been observed. A tentative mechanism for the degradation of Bromo thymol blue by photo-Fentons reaction has been proposed.
