Non-degradation compounds are nowadays not being disposed into the environment, or are removed before being disposed into the environment. The aim of this study was to assess the degradation of aniline from aqueous media by electro/Fe2+/peroxydisulphate (PDS) process. The effects of different parameters like pH (3-9), electric current (EC; 10-30 mA/cm(2)), dose of PDS (10-40 mM), Fe2+ dose (5-20 mM) and initial aniline concentration (20-100 mg/L) on the degradation of aniline were investigated in the laboratory reactor in the batch condition. The results showed that the removal efficiency of aniline decreased by increasing the initial pH and pollutant concentration; however, with increasing EC and PDS doses and ferrous concentration, the removal efficiency increased. The maximum of aniline degradation, equalling 83%, was obtained at 60 min of reaction time. Also, for reaction time of 60-min runs, PDS only, EC only, PDS + Fe, PDS + EC and PDS + Fe + Fe, respectively, have 8.9%, 53%, 43%, 65% and 83% of the removal efficiency. The degradation efficiency of aniline from synthetic wastewater was significantly improved when the combined processes PDS/electro-conduction/Fe2+ was applied.
