Abstract

The photocatalytic activity of V/TiO2 was studied for the degradation of gaseous 1,2-dichloroethylene (1,2-DCE). Although the addition of vanadium ions decreased the surface area of V/TiO2, the photocatalytic activity of V/TiO2 was better than those of synthesized nude TiO2 or P25. The role of V9IV) might be responsible for the enhanced 1,2-DCE photodegradation, as compared to those from P25 or synthesized nude TiO2. The intermediates of 1,2-DCE photocatalyic degradation include C2H5Cl, CH2Cl2, and HCl. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 101st AWMA Annual Conference and Exhibition (Portland, OR 6/24-27/2008).
