© 2018, Avestia Publishing. Industrial wastewaters contain not only organic pollutants but also considerable amounts of inorganic ions that may affect the efficiency of wastewater remediation processes. Thus, it is important to study the influence of such ions in the respective chemical reactions. Here we performed Fenton reactions for the decolourization of Rhodamine B dye using the naturally occurring mineral pyrite (FeS2) as heterogeneous catalyst in presence of different inorganic ions that are typically present in wastewater. Additionally, the effect of milling time of the pyrite powder on the performance of the heterogeneous Fenton reaction has also been investigated.
