Findings from University of Tabriz Provides New Data on Molecular Catalysis (Preparation of a novel gamma-FeOOH-GAC nano composite for decolorization of textile wastewater by photo Fenton-like process in a continuous reactor)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators discuss new findings in Molecular Catalysis. According to news reporting out of Tabriz, Iran, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "For the first time, lepidocrocite-granular activated carbon (gamma-FeOOH-GAC) nano composite was prepared and characterized. The prepared composite was used in the decolorization of textile wastewater containing reactive orange 29 by photo Fenton-like process in a continuous reactor."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of Tabriz, "The influence of wastewater flow rate, H2O2 concentration and pH in decolorization process was studied using response surface methodology. The optimum conditions were flow rate of 1.98 mL min(-1), H2O2 concentration of 3.25 mM and pH of 1.98. The decolorization ability of gamma-FeOOH-GAC/H2O2/UV process was compared with that of gamma-FeOOH-GAC/UV, gamma-FeOOH-GAC/H2O2, gamma-FeOOH-GAC, H2O2/UV, and UV processes at the optimum conditions."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The obtained results indicated that gamma-FeOOH-GAC/H2O2/UV process was more effective than other processes in the decolorization of the wastewater."
