|摘要:||An electrode, stainless steel supported on graphite, was used for the degradation of hazardous organic compounds, azo dye Orange G (OG), using the photoelectro- Fenton (PEF) process. Results showed that the applied current controlled the electrogeneration rate of both ferrous ion and hydrogen peroxide, which in turn affected the dye degradation kinetics. At an applied current density of 45Acm-2, the SS-graphite electrode yielded a molar [H2O2]/[Fe2+] ratio of 3.6, which was optimal for dye degradation. Under otherwise identical conditions, UV irradiation significantly enhanced OG degradation, i.e.,PEF is more effective than electro-Fenton (EF) process. At the optimal applied current density of 45Acm-2, or optimal molar [H2O2]/[Fe2+] of 3.6, OG decolorization and total organic carbon removal were 83% (in 3h) and 55% (in 7h), versus 75% (in 3h) and 20% (in 7h) by PEF and EF, respectively. OG degradation by both PEF and EF processes followed the pseudo first-order kinetics, which suggested the major role of OH radical in OG decolorization.|
