The photocatalytic degradation of a herbicide derivative, chlorotoluron [3-(3-chloro-4-methylphenyl)-1,1-dimethylurea, 1], has been investigated in aqueous suspensions of titanium dioxide (TiO2) under a variety of conditions. The degradation was studied by monitoring the change in substrate concentration employing UV spectroscopic analysis technique and depletion in total organic carbon (TOC) content as a function of irradiation time. The degradation kinetics of the model compound was… CONTINUE READING
