What is Fenton Process

Impact of Textile Dyes on Public Health and the Environment
Fenton processes involve the reactions of peroxides (mostly H 2 O 2 ) with iron ions to form active oxygen moieties that oxidize the target compounds.

Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), namely the Fenton oxidation, ozonation, electrochemical oxidation, and photocatalysis, are potential alternative techniques for dye removal from textile effluents. Their inherent ability to completely mineralize pollutants including those recalcitrant to biodegradation and to be compatibly integrated in conventional technologies present grounds for consideration of AOPs as alternative wastewater treatment options. Advanced oxidation involves generation and subsequent reaction of various radicals and reacting species with the target compounds. This chapter discusses the fundamentals and chemistry and efficiencies of the Fenton process, ozonation, electrochemical oxidation, and photocatalysis processes for complete dye removal from wastewater. The reaction mechanisms, performance, and factors affecting efficiency are discussed.

Chemical and Biological Treatment of Dyes
Fenton process is attractive alternative to conventional oxidation processes in effluent treatment of recalcitrant compounds. The oxidation of organic substrates by iron (II) and hydrogen peroxide is called the “Fenton chemistry” and it was first described by H.J.H. Fenton.
