Abstract: Discoloration and mineralization of an azo dye Orange II was conducted by using a bentonite clay-based Fe nanocomposite (Fe-B) film as a heterogeneous photo-Fenton catalyst in the presence of UVC light and H(2)O(2). Under optimal conditions (pH=3.0, 10 mM H(2)O(2), and 1 x 8W UVC), 100% discoloration and 50-60% TOC removal of 0.2 mM Orange II can be achieved in 90 and 120 min, respectively. The mineralization kinetics of 0.2 mM Orange II is much slower than the corresponding discoloration kinetics. Under the s…
