In this study, decoloration of Direct Blue 71 (DB71) and Direct Red 23 (DR23) has been discussed by using Multiwalled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNTs) and Hydrogen peroxide under UV radiation. The purpose of this study is removal of organic compounds by using carbon nanotubes that are effective adsorbents for different types of pollutants, due to their porous nature and large surface area. It also causes catalytic decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. Adsorption rate was investigated under various parameters (initial dye concentration, salt, temperature and pH). The main objective of this study is to appraise the synergic effect between H2O2 and MWCNTs under UV radiation. The dye adsorption results of spectrophotometer, showed that by decreasing the dye concentration from 0.2 g/l to 0.05 g/l with the optimal value of MWCNTs 0.2 g/l and hydrogen peroxide 2 g/l at pH=4 and 6 cm distance from the UV lamp, the dye removal increased.
