The treatment of perchloroethylene (PCE) was investigated by the promotion of Fenton-like reactions using the iron oxyhydroxide goethite (α-FeOOH) as the sole source of the iron catalyst. A silica sand-goethite matrix was contaminated with 5 mg L−1 PCE and the oxidative treatments were conducted with 0.15 mM, 2 mM, 5mM, 10mM, 20mM, and 30mM H2O2. Perchloroethylene was effectively degraded within 96 hr and the most efficient treatment stoichiometry was observed using 0.15 mM H2O2 at pH 3. The… CONTINUE READING
