Determination of optimum operating conditions of carmine decoloration by UV/H2O2 using response surface methodology.


In this study, the photolytic decoloration of carmine (C.I. Natural Red 4) via UV radiation in the presence of H2O2 was optimized using response surface methodology (RSM). According to analysis of variance (ANOVA) results, the proposed model can be used to navigate the design space. It was found that the response of carmine degradation is very sensitive to… (More)
