Progress in Research of the Combined Adsorption-Photocatalysis for the Removal of Volatile Organic Compounds


Article Preview

TiO2 photocatalytic technology was developed in the past two decades in air treatment because of good photocatalytic effect, non-toxic, chemical stability, low cost, reusable features, the effect use of solar energy. A new composite materials of visible light photocatalytic degradation of low concentration of volatile organic compounds were produced by use of combining the adsorbent with TiO2 photocatalytic technology.The adsorbent can enrich concentrations of volatile organic compounds on the surface of the TiO2 photocatalyst. In this paper,the mechanism of the combined adsorption-photocatalysis for the removal of volatile organic compounds and immobilization methods、principle、craft were reviewed.The characteristic of the immobilization methods was analysed.It laid the foundation for the optimizing of the immobilization methods and the improving of the photocatalytic efficiency.
