This work demonstrates the application at near neutral pH of the photo- Fenton process mediated by ferricarboxylates on the treatment of aqueous solutions containing the antibiotic Oxytetracycline (OTC) under solar irradiation. The formation of a Fe:OTC complex after Fe2+ oxidation to Fe3+, in the presence of H2O2, showed the inconvenience of using the conventional Fe2+/H2O2/UV-Vis process at near neutral pH levels, as the Fe:OTC complex is retained in the filter. To overcome this, a Fe3+/Oxalate process was proposed. Process efficiency was evaluated for variables such as Fe3+ concentration and pH, using a compound parabolic collector (CPC) photoreactor at lab-scale under simulated solar radiation. The effect of the matrix was also tested by spiking OTC into two different real wastewaters.
