Mesoporous MCM-41 and Fe loaded MCM-41(Fe/MCM-41), which were successfully prepared by a hydrothermal method and a dipping method respectively, were applied as heterogeneous catalysts for ozonation of p-chlorobenzoic acid(p-CBA)in aqueous solution.MCM-41 and Fe/MCM-41 were characterized by XRD, FT-IR and diffuse reflectance UV-vis(DR-UV-vis)techniques.The presence of either MCM-41 or Fe/MCM-41 improves p-CBA and total organic carbon(TOC)removal efficiency compared to ozonation alone.Under the experimental condition, TOC removal rate of Fe/MCM-41/O3 process is over 63.5% at 60 min oxidation time, 44.5% using MCM-41 as catalyst, only 37.7% with ozonation alone.The presence of /erf-butanol(TBA)in the Fe/MCM-41/ O3 process indicated that the oxidation mechanism of ρ-CBA occurs via OH in the liquid bulk.And Fe/MCM-41 is a promising catalyst.
