Paper Title:
Solar Photocatalytic Degradation of 2,4-Dichlorophenol by TiO2 Nanoparticle Prepared by Sol-Gel Method
  Abstract

The solar photocatalytic degradation of 2,4-dicholrophenol in aqueous solution was carried out direct solar radiation without any collector. A slurry reactor with TiO2 nanoparticles catalyst was used. The catalyst sample was prepared by sol-gel method from titanium tetra-isopropoxide as raw material and calcinated at 400°C. The photocatalytic activity of TiO2 nanoparticles were evaluated by photocatalytic degradation of initial concentration (50 mgl-1) 2,4-dicholrophenol under solar irradiation. The average solar intensity of ultra violet (UV) was recorded as 23 Wm-2. HPLC was used for monitoring the concentration of 2,4-dicholrophenol in solution at different time intervals during the experiment. The degradation efficiency of 2,4-dicholrophenol removal was 93.8% at pH solution of 6, irradiated for 1 h and using optimum amount of catalyst 2gl-1 .
