This investigation was performed to study the degradation of p-nitrophenol(PNP) in the bipolar liquid bed cell catalyzed by liquid phase.The hydrogen peroxide produced on cathodes with the ferrous generated Fenton's reagent to produce hydroxyl radicals which are very active toward organic compounds to strengthen bipolar liquid bed cell in disposing organic compounds.The effects of cell voltage,ferrous concentration and airflow on the COD and PNP removal efficiency were also studied.When pH=3.0,cell voltage is 30V,ferrous concentration is 500×10~(-6) and airflow is 0.4 m~(3)/h,higher removal efficiency of the COD and PNP are obtained.
