Photocatalytic Degradation of Methylene Blue by Magnetite+H2O2+UV Process

Khan M. Reza, Asw Kurny, and Fahmida Gulshan

Abstract—The photocatalytic degradation of Methylene Blue (MB) dye has been investigated by locally available Magnetite with H2O2. Parameters such as Magnetite dosage, concentration of dye pH effect, light intensity and oxidizing agent (H2O2) were used to study the degradation of MB. The degradation rates were found to be strongly influenced by all the above parameters. The Magnetite/ H2O2/UV process proved to be capable of decolorizing Methylene Blue.

Index Terms—Photocatalytic degradation, magnetite, oxidizing agent, methylene blue.
