Özet

In the present study, the treatment of aqueous dimethyl phthalate (DMP) by the combined electrocoagulation/Fenton (EC/Fenton) process was investigated Compared with plain electrocoagulation, the combined EC/Fenton process proved to be a more effective treatment alternative both considering complete DMP degradation and organic matter removal in terms of mineralization. The proper electrocoagulation operational conditions for the present case were established as follows "initial pH 2.0, applied current density 22 mA/cm(2), electrolyte concentration 1500 mg/L NaCl. H(2)O(2) concentration of 40 mM for aqueous DMP (100 mg/L) solution for the present case.
