Microwave – Induced Oxidation Progress for Treatment of Imidacloprid Pesticide Wastewater


Article Preview

The microwave-induced hydrogen peroxide oxidation process was used for the treatment of synthetic imidacloprid pesticide wastewater, which the initial concentration of COD was 268mg/L. The results showed that COD removal rate could reach 50.06% with the following working conditions: imidacloprid pesticide wastewater 100mL, H2O2 concentration 26.52g/L, microwave power 119W, irradiation time 1min, pH value 6. It provides an effective technology for the removal of imidacloprid pesticide wastewater.
