Comparison of radiation and photoinduced degradation of pollutants in water: synergistic effect of O2, O3 and TiO2. A Short Review

  • Nikola Getoff

Abstract —The radiation- and photoinduced degradation of water pollutants such as trichloroethylene (TCE), ethylenediaminotetraacetic acid (EDTA) and 4-chlorobenzaldehyde (4-ClBA) in the absence and presence of O3 and/or TiO2 were reviewed and compared. The application of sunlight as energy source for photocatalytic processes is briefly mentioned. The electron beam treatment of large quantities of water seems to be the most economic method.
