Abstract: Mixtures of monoazo Tartrazine, diazo Ponceau SS and triazo Direct Blue 71 dyes with 105 mg L-1 of total organic carbon (TOC) in 0.050 M Na2SO4 at pH 3.0 have been treated by solar photoelectro-Fenton (SPEF). Experiments were carried out in a 2.5 L pre-pilot plant with a Pt/air-diffusion cell coupled to a solar planar photoreactor. Comparative trials were made by anodic oxidation with electrogenerated H2O2 (AO-H2O2) and electro-Fenton (EF) to better understand the role of oxidizing agents. AO-H2O2 gave poor degradation due to the low oxidation ability of ●OH formed at the Pt anode and H2O2 produced at the cathode. Similar color removal was achieved in EF and SPEF because the main oxidant was ●OH formed in the bulk from Fenton's reaction. EF yielded partial mineralization by formation of molecules with high stability against ●OH. In contrast, these by-products were rapidly photolyzed under sunlight irradiation in SPEF, which was the most powerful treatment. Up to 8 linear final carboxylic acids were detected, along with the release of sulfate and ammonium ions. The effect of Fe2+ and azo dye concentrations, and current density over the SPEF performance was assessed. Total mineralization of azo dyes mixtures occurred when operating up to 105 mg L-1 TOC with 0.50 mM Fe2+ at 100 mA cm-2.
