Degradation of organic dyes from the textile industry is a matter of enormous environmental concern. The horseradish peroxidase enzyme is known for its capacity to remove phenolic compounds and aromatic amines from aqueous solutions and also to decolorize textile effluents. This study evaluates the potential of the both enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and its biomimetic hematin in the decolorization of alizarin. We describe an UV−visible study of alizarin elimination from aqueous solutions… CONTINUE READING
