Abstract The sonophotocatalytic degradation of 2,4- dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) under ultraviolet irradiation combined with probe-type ultrasound was carried out in a jacketed glass reactor.
Four synthetic methods were used to prepare titanium oxide powder. The chemical and physical properties of the photocatalyst samples were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and UV–vis diffuse reﬂectance spectra (UV-vis), also the specific surface area of all samples was measured by BET method.
The sonophotocatalytic activity performance of photocatalyst was evaluated by UV-vis spectrophotometer to detect the concentration of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). Hydrolysis-TiO2 prepared at heat treatment temperature of 85oC has higher photocatalytic than the other synthetic methods prepared at low temperature heat treatment. It can be attributed to that the synergistic effect of heterojunction in anatase/brookite composite can inhibit recombination rate of electrons and holes pairs to improve sonophotodegradation performance.
The operating conditions such as probe size, power intensity, photocatalyst loading, initial pH value of solution, effect of additions, pulse time mode, gas supplying and different kinds of photocatalysts were investigated in batch sonophotocatalytic system, the effect of flow velocity in continuous sonophotocatalytic system was also studied.
