The Catalytic Wet Peroxide Oxidation (CWPO) is one of the Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) useful to deplete low concentrated, hazardous compounds in water effluents. CWPO is based on the continuous generation of hydroxyl radicals (HO•) carried out by immobilized cations of transition metals like Fe in presence of peroxide1. Structural modification of bentonites by pillaring with Al/Fe mixed oxides at nanometric scale leads to highly porous materials with the corresponding higher exposure of the catalytic active sites; although it has provided excellent catalytic response in the CWPO degradation of organic pollutants in wastewaters, it might also display interesting potential polishing surface waters for production of drinking water2. However, in order to make it possible at a real-scale, the scaling-up of the catalyst’s preparation from both (i) high-concentrated dissolved metals and (ii) clay precursors, is mandatory. Thus, this research was devoted at first to compare the preparation of highly concentrated Al/Fe solutions by two methodologies against the very widely reported diluted one. The best performing concentrated solution was then used to study in a second step, three procedures for the mineral swelling yielding the pillared clays at 50 g scale. Whereas, the effect of previous refining (C2-R) of the natural clay mineral (C2-N) was determined. Every prepared material was characterized by standard physicochemical methodologies and assessed for their catalytic properties in the CWPO reaction of phenol (PhO) degradation.
