Treatment of the Basic Yellow 2 Dyestuff with Fenton Advanced Oxidation Process

Serkan Bayar, Mahmut Erdogan


In this study, the removal of Basic Yellow 2 (BY2) dyestuff used in textile dyeing industry by Fenton process which is one of the Advanced Oxidation Processes (IOP) was investigated. Effect of pH, Fe2+, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and temperature was evaluated on oxidation process. Removal of the colorant (BY2) was monitored by considering color and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD). A COD removal efficiency of 62.05% and color of 90.71% were obtained under optimum experimental conditions where baseline solution pH is 3, the concentration of (BY2) colorant is 200 mgL-1, rates of Fe2+ and H2O2 are 150 mgL-1 and 400 mgL-1, reaction temperature is 200C and experiment time is 30min.
