Abstract

In this study, photo-Fenton oxidation was applied to degradation of sulfamonomethoxine sodium SMMS in aqueous solution. The operation parameters of pH, temperature, and concentrations of H2O2, Fe and SMMS were investigated. The optimum conditions for the photo-Fenton process were determined as follows: SMMS=4.53 mg-L, pH 4.0, H2O2=0.49 mmol-L, Fe= 19.51 μmol-L and T=25°C. Under these conditions 98.5% of the SMMS degraded. The kinetics were also studied, and degradation of SMMS by the photo-Fenton process could be described by first-order kinetics. The apparent activation energy was calculated as 23.95 kJ-mol. Mineralization of the process was investigated by measuring the chemical oxygen demand COD, and the COD decreased by 99% after 120 min. This process could be used as a pretreatment method for wastewater containing sulfa-monomethoxine sodium.
