Abstract

Indirect ultrasonic irradiation method was applied to degradation process of phenol, the model hazardous organic compound, and the effects of position of the reactor on degradation of phenol, radical generation, and ultrasonic power inside the reactor were investigated. The degradation rate of phenol was influenced by reactors position. The effect of reactor's position on the degradation rate overlapped with its effects on chemical efficiency. The degradation rate of phenol was improved by TiO2 particle addition, because the particles surface area was considered to be working for OH radical formation by ultrasonic irradiation. The degradation process of phenol using indirect ultrasonic irradiation system in the presence of TiO2 is effective for reduction of toxic phenolic compounds. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 8th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (Montreal, Quebec, Canada 8/23-27/2009).
