AbstractCu(II) enhanced the oxygen activation by Fe(II) to increase the yield of oxidants. However the factors controlling the catalytic performance and indeed the underlying influencing mechanisms remained unclear. Here, we presented the detailed study of Cu(II)-Fe(II) reactions for a range of pH and Cu(II)/Fe(II) ratios. From the results obtained, we provided insight into the factors controlling the redox reactions of Fe-Cu and the catalytic behaviours of active species. A reaction scheme for the Fe(II)/Cu(II) system was developed in which the in-situ formed Cu(I) mainly contributed to producing H2O2 and Fe(II) dominantly decomposed H2O2 to hydroxyl radical (HO center dot) [see companion article] (Yufan Chen). Circumneutral conditions facilitated the catalytic processes; under acidic conditions, the reverse reaction between Fe(III) and Cu(I) was strongly favoured; alkaline conditions improved the reducing capacity, which subsequently enhanced the generation of Cu(0) instead of Cu(I). There was a saturated Cu(II)/Fe(II) ratio above which further addition of Cu(II) could not be reduced, and then excessive Cu(I) and Cu(II) consumed HO center dot and O-2(center dot-), respectively. Therefore, the highest removal efficiency of organic pollutants was achieved when the stoichiometric Cu(II)/Fe(II) ratio was 60% at circumneutral pH. The new findings have implications for the treatment of mixed wastewater where copper and organic pollutants coexist. (C) 2019 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
