Preparation and Application of Iron-Loaded Activated Carbon for Catalytic Oxidation of Phenol Wastewater
The catalyst was prepared by using activated carbon as the carrier and loading with iron oxide as the active component, the main factors affecting the preparation of this catalyst were further analyzed. When this catalyst was applied to the electrocatalytic oxidation degradation of phenol simulation wastewater, the affecting factors on the removing rate of phenol were studied. Under the optimized preparation conditions of soaking in 2mol/L HCl and 5%NaOH for 12 h, respectively, and then in FeCl3 with the concentration of 10% for 24h, calcination temperature 240°C for 2.5 h, the optimum catalytic activity could be obtained.
