Dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma has been recently used for removal of synthetic organic compounds (SOCs) from aqueous environments. The removal of SOCs by alone DBD is significantly limited by its high electricity needs and inefficient mineralization, which affects the further application of DBD for SOCs. The combined application of DBD with other technologies and the addition of a supplementary substance for energy-saving were proposed to resolve these problems. The addition of catalysts is considered to be a promising and innovative approach to increase the energy yield of DBD, improve the environment friendly of DBD, develop the variety of goal SOCs, and improve the removal efficiency of DBD system. Despite the increasing use of the coupling form of DBD and catalysts, as catalytic dielectric barrier discharge (CDBD), but it still requires a comprehensive review to summarize the last studies and highlight the future perspectives in this area. Therefore, this work is the first literature review aimed to critically assess the latest developments of catalysts coupling with DBD employed in aqueous environments. Moreover, performance evaluation, energy yield, toxicity, eco-friendly, and future perspectives of the CDBD systems for SOCs removal were discussed and overviewed. The results showed that the coupling of catalysts with DBD presents synergistic effects and had excellent removal performance for aqueous SOCs. Overall, it can be concluded that the essential principles of environmental and economic sustainability have been addressed for the removal of persistent pollutants from aqueous environments in the CDBD systems.
