A systematic analysis has been carried out to distinguish “kinetic” and “transport” limited regimes for photocatalytic degradation in a TiO2 slurry system using benzoic acid as a model component. Experiments were performed to investigate the effect of both monoparametric (e.g., catalyst loading, circulation rate, and initial concentration) and biparametric (e.g., catalyst loading and circulation rate, initial concentration of solute, and light intensity) on the degradation rate to differentiate… CONTINUE READING
