Using ·OH from Fenton’s reagent, the strong oxidation treatment of methylene blue dye wastewater can destruct the chromophore in organic compounds, and yield CO2, H2O and small molecule inorganic compounds by oxidative degradation finally. The influence of Fenton's reagent dosage, initial pH, and reaction time on the degradation effect was studied. The experimental results show that the decolorization rate of 100mL 20mg/L methylene blue dye wastewater can achieve 96% in the conditions of 0.02g FeSO4·7H2O, 1mL 30% H2O2, initial pH at 3.0 ~4.0, reaction time is 30 min, at room temperature. This treatment of dye wastewater is easy to operate and with good effect.
