The experimental data are grouped into tabs in the uploaded Excel file.Tabs 1-4 are the UV 478 nm absorption data for orange G degradation by various concentrations of persulphate activated by various forms of iron material. Tab 5 (PS-addition-mode) shows UV 478 absorption data for the various modes of adding persulphate. Tab 6 (SA) shows HPLC data for salicylic acid degradation by persulphate activated by steel wool. Tab 7 (1NA) and Tab 8 (Ph) contain HPLC data for 1-naphthylamine and phenol, respectively, degradation by persulphate activated by steel wool. Table 9 (TC-Ph-1NA) contain total carbon content analysis for phenol and 1-naphthylamine degradation. Tab 10 (PS-leftover-TC-reduction) contain estimations of residual persulphates after degradation experiments for phenol, 1-naphthylamine, and salicylic acids. The total carbon content analysis for salicylic acid degradation is also presented in this tab.
