Photodegradation of o-cresol by ZnO under UV irradiation

  title={Photodegradation of o-cresol by ZnO under UV irradiation},
  author={Yadollah Abdollahi},
The effective removal of o-cresol is currently both an environmental problem. This paper shows how degradation of o-cresol was carried out, in the presence of UV; by ZnO as photocatalyst. To measure the efficiency of photodegradation, the different variables studied included amount of photocatalyst, concentration of o-cresol and pH. The results showed photodegradation was favorable in the pH 6-9 range with amount of photocatalyst 2.5g/L, and o-cresol concentration 100ppm. The detected… CONTINUE READING
