This study evaluates a new method for chemically destroying organic pollutants in wastewater using spontaneous corrosion of iron metal sheet surfaces in the presence of hydrogen peroxide. Model pollutants (phenol and benzoic acid) were degraded in batch experiments to investigate which parameters affected the process performance. Iron metal sheet surfaces spontaneously corrode under acidic conditions producing iron species (mainly ferrous ions) dissolved in aqueous solution, which react with… CONTINUE READING
