Al,Fe-pillared clay was synthesized from domestic clay from Bogovina according to a common procedure: grinding, sieving, Na exchange, pillaring, drying and calcination. Two synthesized samples differing only in calcining conditions were prepared. Phase composition and textural properties of the starting clay and synthesized pillared clays were characterized using X-ray diffraction and physisorption of nitrogen. Catalytic tests were performed using sample with better textural properties being the one submitted to milder calcining conditions. Catalytic wet peroxide oxidative degradation of aromatic compounds phenol and tartrazine on the synthesized catalyst was confirmed showing better efficiency in the case of tartrazine.
