PHOTO-SENSITIZED OXIDATION OF 4-CHLOROTHIOPHENOL BY FENTON REAGENT
Dr. Dharmendra Kumar*
Among advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), the photo chemically
enhanced Fenton reaction may be effective for the treatment of
industrial wastewater. The Photo-sensitized degradation of 4-
Chlorothiophenol by Fenton reagent has been investigated. The effect
of various reaction parameters such as substrate, H2O2, FeSO4, pH,
polarity of solvent and catalyst variation on the rate of photocatalytic
process has been studied. Photoproduct was characterized by physical, chemical and spectral
methods. A tentative mechanism has been proposed with overall reaction.
Keywords: Photo - sensitized oxidation, 4-Chlorothiophenol, Fenton and photo-Fenton reagent.
