|Title:||Catalytic wet air oxidation of toxic nitrogen containing compounds (pyridine) from wastewater|

|Abstract:||Cu-Co/C (heterogeneous) and CuSO<sub>4</sub> (homogeneous) were used as catalysts for wet air oxidation to remove nitrogen containing toxic organic compounds from wastewater. For this purpose, a model compound, pyridine, was treated in a high-pressure batch autoclave at mild conditions of temperature and pressure. Copper and cobalt are relatively inexpensive catalytic material and have shown higher conversion efficiencies. Both CuSO<sub>4</sub> and Cu-Co/C have optimum activity at an initial pH 4 of the pyridine solution. After 2 h of reaction time, % conversion with CuSO<sub>4</sub> (75.1 %) was more in comparison to Cu-Co/C (71.8 %) using 5 mg/l catalyst concentration at 160 <sup>o</sup>C and 9 bar total pressure.|
