Photocatalytic degradation of an organophosphorus pesticide phosalone in aqueous suspensions of titanium dioxide.

The present work deals with photocatalytic degradation of an organophosphorus pesticide, phosalone, in water in the presence of TiO2 particles under UV light illumination (1000 W). The influence of the basic photocatalytic parameters such as pH of the solution, amount of TiO2, irradiation time, stirring rate, and distance from UV source, on the… CONTINUE READING
