Novel Photocatalyst Immobilized on Springs and Packed Photoreactor


TiO2 photocatalysts immobilized on novel supports of Pyrex glass springs using the dip-coating technique were prepared. A packed photoreactor was developed with advantages such as uniform-distributed light throughout the reactor, high ratio of illuminated surface areas to the reactor volume, low pressure drop, and no mass transfer limitation. This photoreactor provides a promising candidate to scale-up for the commercial application.
