Abstract

Degradation of commercial textile dye named Malachite green (MG) has been investigated by Fenton reagent under xenon beam irradiation (1501~1532 lux, λ ⤠320 nm) in an aqueous solution. The degradation process was initiated by the photolysis of Fe(III)-hydroxyl species, and accelerated by xenon beam irradiation, due to enhance photolysis of Fe(III) species, which enhances the regeneration of Fe(II) with concomitant production of hydroxyl free radicals.  Influences of various experimental parameters, such as the concentration of H2O2, Fe (III), xenon irradiation source, and pH of the experimental solutions on the initial rate and photo-degradation extent of the MG dye degradation were assessed and optimized. Although the initial rate of degradation was not affected by the initial MG concentration, it was affected by the concentration of Fenton reagents [Fe(III) and H2O2 solution], pH of the experimental solutions, and the intensity of the xenon beam. A significant enhancement of the initial rate and extent of degradation of MG dye was observed at solution pH of ~3.1 under xenon beam radiation. Complete degradation of MG dye (>99.5 %) was achieved by xenon beam/Fentonâs reagent process in aqueous solution (pH, 3.1).
