A number of chlorophenols, namely 2-chlorophenol, 2,4,-dichlorophenol and 2,4,6-trichlorophenol, were decomposed in aqueous solution by using TiO2 as photoactivated catalyst under UV radiation emitted by a 125W medium pressure Hg lamp in an immersion well-type quartz photoreactor. The organic-bound chlorine was converted into the environmentally harmless inorganic chloride. For catalyst doses between 0.1 and 0.5gl(-1) the reaction mechanisms are elucidated. The corresponding rate constants were… CONTINUE READING
