Abstract

Sulfur and Zinc co-doped TiO2 prepared by a sol-gel method to degrade toluene under a fluorescent lamp was investigated. The results indicate that S,Zn co-doped TiO2 photocatalysts are mainly nano-size with an anatase phase structure. The degradation reactions of toluene were performed under various operation conditions. The results show that the toluene conversion increases with increasing toluene concentration and decreasing relative humidity. Based on the results of activity test, S0.05Zn0.001/TiO2 was chosen for further studies. The main oxidation products of toluene photodegradation are CO2, H2O, benzyl alcohol, acetone, butadiene and acetic acid. Two possible mechanisms have been developed for photodegradation of toluene in a dry and a humid environment.
