Phenol is a carcinogen to humans and is a serious health concern, even at low concentrations. The efficient removal of phenol inside waste water is highly desirable. Laser induced photo-catalysis has been applied for removal of phenol from waste water using p-type NiO semiconductor catalyst for the first time. The characteristics of phenol removal using laser induced photo-catalytic process were investigated. The dependence of phenol removal on laser energy (100-250 mJ) and laser irradiation… CONTINUE READING
