Adsorption methods for removing Rhodamine B from wastewater and oxidative degradation methods based on the use of advanced oxidation processes (sonolysis, photolysis, sono-, photo- and sonophotocatalysis) are considered. It has been established that naturally occurring materials (such as clays, zeolites, coal ash, anaerobic sludge, agricultural solid wastes) and their modified or activated analogues are used as adsorbents for the removal of Rhodamine B. The possible mechanism of photo- and sonophotocatalytic degradation of Rhodamine B in the presence of micro- and nanostructured titanium(IV) oxide is presented. The effectiveness of its application for degradation of Rhodamine B is analyzed.
