Photocatalytic degradation of volatile organic compounds

Hsin Chu, Yi Hsing Lin, Ting-Ke Tseng

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are major sources of indoor air pollution that significantly affect human health and the indoor environment quality. Photocatalytic oxidation is regarded as a promising method to destruct VOCs indoors due to its fast oxidation rate, high decomposition rate, relatively convenient operation at room temperature, good stability, and nontoxicity. In this chapter, we discuss the preparation and doping methods of various photocatalytic catalysts, as well as their operating parameters and kinetic models.
