Fenton chemistry encompasses reactions of hydrogen peroxide in the presence of iron to generate highly reactive species such as the hydroxyl radical and possibly others. In this review, the complex mechanisms of Fenton and Fenton-like reactions and the important factors influencing these reactions, from both a fundamental and practical perspective, in applications to water and soil treatment, are discussed. The review covers modified versions including the photoassisted Fenton reaction, use of…

Fundamentals and Applications of the Photo-Fenton Process to Water Treatment
Among Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs), the Fenton process and the photochemically enhanced or assisted Fenton process, commonly called photo-Fenton, are considered to be among the most efficient
Metal nanoparticles as heterogeneous Fenton catalysts.
This Review summarizes the use of metal nanoparticles, either unsupported or deposited on large-surface-area solids, as Fenton catalysts, and particular emphasis is given to the reaction conditions in which these catalysts are used.
Heterogeneous Fenton catalysts for the abatement of organic pollutants from aqueous solution: a review
Fenton processes have gained much attention in the field of wastewater treatment during recent years. In order to overcome the disadvantages of Fenton processes, research has focused more on the
Treatment of organic pollutants by homogeneous and heterogeneous Fenton reaction processes
Nowadays, the water ecosystem is being polluted due to the rapid industrialization and massive use of antibiotics, fertilizers, cosmetics, paints, and other chemicals. Chemical oxidation is one of
Heterogeneous fenton catalysts based on activated carbon and related materials.
This review describes the work that has used carbonaceous materials either directly as catalysts or as a large-area support for catalytically activated transition metals or metal-oxide nanoparticles, and describes the activity of activated carbon in the absence or presence of metal-containing particles.
Oxidation of hazardous compounds by heterogeneous catalysis based on Cu/Al2O3 system in Fenton-type reactions
ABSTRACT This review examines in detail all components involved in heterogeneous Fenton-type reactions, with special focus on copper species supported on alumina for H2O2 decomposition, their redox


Advanced Oxidation Processes for the Degradation and Detoxification of 4-Nitrophenol
Advanced oxidation processes such as hydrogen peroxide photolysis, Fenton reagent and ozonation combined with hydrogen peroxide and UV-radiation were applied for the degradation of 4-nitrophenol.
Chemical oxidation treatment of petroleum contaminated soil using Fenton's reagent
Abstract Fenton's reagent, a strong oxidant, was evaluated for suitability to treat soils contaminated with 2‐methylnaphthalene (an aromatic compound), n‐hexdecane (an aliphatic compound) and diesel
New Evidence against Hydroxyl Radicals as Reactive Intermediates in the Thermal and Photochemically Enhanced Fenton Reactions
During the oxidative degradation of 2,4-dimethylaniline (2,4-xylidine) by means of the H2O2/UV method, a series of hydroxylated aromatic amines are formed, this result confirming the role of the
Fenton-mediated oxidation in the presence and absence of oxygen.
A reaction mechanism in which the hydroxyl radical is nominated to be the active oxidant in Fenton systems is used to describe the oxidation of formic acid (HCOOH) under a variety of experimental conditions and a kinetic model based on this reaction mechanism is shown to adequately describe results.
Degradation of ethylene thiourea (ETU) with three fenton treatment processes.
FT displayed the most efficient degradation of primary degradation products of ETU, which is an impurity and degradation product of the widely used ethylenebisdithiocarbamate fungicide group.
Effects of Fulvic Acid on Fe(II) Oxidation by Hydrogen Peroxide
Iron redox cycling can catalyze the oxidation of humic substances and increase the rate of oxygen consumption in surface waters rich in iron and organic carbon. This study examines the role of
Degradation of Organic Pollutants by the Photo‐Fenton‐Process
The Photo-Fenton-Process utilizing the combinations Fe(II)/H 2 O 2 /UVA and Fe(III) oxalate/H 2 O 2 /UVA was employed with success to degrade biorefractory organic pollutants in landfill leachate.
