The chemical and photochemical decolorization of Rhodamine B (RhB) in water has been carried out by Fenton, Fenton-like and photo-Fenton-like process. The effect of applied H2O2, Fe2+ dosage (Fenton process), H2O2, Feo dosage (Fenton-like and photo-Fenton-like process), UV light power (photo-Fenton-like process) pH (all processes) have been studied. The results obtained showed that more than 98% of color removal was obtained for the RhB solutions in every process. However, Fenton-like process was not suitable for the color removal of RhB because Fenton-like process was required much more reagents than Fenton and photo-Fenton-like process. The Fenton and photo-Fenton-like process showed similar reagents need. Optimum pH for three processes in this study is about pH 3. The relative order of sensitivity for pH of each process was: Fenton-like > photo-Fenton-like > Fenton.
