Studies on Degradation of Syntan used in Leather Tanning Process using Ozone

Rema. T*1, B. Parivallal1 and R. Alwar Ramanujam1

Abstract—Degradation of syntan used in leather tanning process has been studied using ozone. Studies were carried out by varying operational parameters like initial syntan concentration, pH and ozone dose. The removal of COD, tannin and UV absorbing constituents has been determined. Degradation of syntan in terms of COD, Tannin and UV absorbing constituents was maximum at pH 7.

Index Terms—Ozone, COD, Tannin, UV 254nm.
