In this study, the photo-ozonation reaction for carbamazepine (CBZ) removal was investigated under alkaline conditions. Response surface methodology based on a central composite design was used to obtain the optimum experimental conditions, and examine both main and interaction effects of the photo-ozonation reaction variables such as O-3 concentration, H2O2 concentration and UV intensity. The level of O-3 concentration significantly influenced CBZ removal (p < 0.001). CBZ removal increased with increasing both O-3 and H2O2 concentration up to a certain level, whereas further increase in O-3 and H2O2 concentration resulted in an adverse effect due to the hydroxyl radical scavenging effect. The optimum conditions for complete CBZ removal at pH 9 were found to be 0.89 mg of O-3 l(-1), 4.85 mg of H2O2 l(-1) and 3.18 mW of UV intensity cm(-2), respectively.
