This paper examines the use of three advanced oxidation processes in degrading the textile dye, Reactive Red 235. The dye was oxidised using ozonation, standard Fenton's reagent (Fe2+/H2O2) and a modified photo-Fenton's process (UV/Fe oxalate/H2O2) under a variety of conditions. The effects of initial dye concentration, initial pH and NaCl concentration were studied for each process. Each process was found to have different optimum conditions as determined by the underlying reaction mechanisms.
