Photocatalytic degradation of volatile pollutants

Author(s): Jewel Das, Eldon R. Rene* and Jagannathan Krishnan

Photocatalytic oxidation is a promising technology for the removal of gasphase volatile organic compounds. This technique is cost-efficient, simple to perform, yields high removal of the pollutants and does not generate large quantities of waste. In this mini-review, the application of photocatalytic oxidation for waste-gas treatment, the mechanisms involved and the operational aspects to be considered for enhanced reactor performance has been reviewed in brief.
