Abstract We report on a new approach to the photocatalytic decomposition of gaseous pollutants on inherently non-active nanoporous silica-gel substrate in fix-bed continuous-flow reactor under UV-A illumination. The pollutants and oxidized products (CO/CO 2 ) concentrations were permanently monitored in the current study. The observed effect is of autocatalytic nature and related to a molecular chlorine accumulation and retention onto the strongly adsorbing material with a large BET surface… CONTINUE READING
