Aim: Fenolic compounds are major of pollutants in medicine, food and local matrixe. The enzyme peroxidase is known for its capacity to remove phenolic compounds and aromatic amines from aqueous solutions and also to decolorize textile effluents. In this study, decolorization of anthraquinone dye, Reactive Blue 19 (RB 19), large quantities of which used in textile and other industries was investigated using Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) at different conditions. In addition, decolorization efficiency of dye by enzyme was studied in the presence of denaturing agent urea and salt in synthetic wastewater.
