Decontamination of Industral Wase Water by Photocatalytic Oxidation of Organic Components: A Model Study.
Zeitschrift für Wasser- und Abwasser-Forschung 25, pp. 163-167.
Industrial waste water which was highly loaded by chlorinated (50 mg AOX l-1) and other organic compounds was decontaminated by laboratory-scale photooxidation of these organic impurities in the presence of oxygen and titanium dioxide as photocatalyst. The disappearance of the organic compounds was determined as a function of the irradiation time. Some contaminants such as chlorobenzene, trichloroethylene and trichloromethane were photolyzed separately in order to obtain information on the course and stoichiometry of the photooxidation
