Photocatalysis is green technology for the degradation of recalcitrant organic compounds in water, and have found success in the removal of several water pollutants. Degradation of pollutants is often accompanied by their conversion into other compounds some of which are sometimes feared to be more environmentally harmful than the parent compound. This study profiles aromatic intermediates formed during photocatalytic degradation of phenol in a batch system. Catechol, hydroquinone and… CONTINUE READING
