Degradation of acrylic water base color from synthetic wastewater by the Fenton process was performed. Experiments were conducted on the sample containing 100 and 400 mg/l of Acrylic water base color. The study was performed for searching optimum values of FeSO4 and H2O2 concentration, pH and temperature. The H2O2 requirement seems to be related to initial COD of the sample. FeSO4/ H2O2 ratios found were not changed for .the temperature affected the COD removal significantly at high degrees.
