This investigation used UV light of 365 nm and titanium dioxide in aqueous suspension to study the photocatalytic reaction of o-methylbenzoic acid under the influence of pH values, anion additives and the varieties of titanium dioxide. From experimental results, under the condition of 5 g/l TiO2, pH 3 and light intensity of 2.45 mW/cm(2), 0.1 mM of o-methylbenzoic acid could be completely decomposed in 2 h. The reaction was faster with lowering pH, and was found to be apparent first-order following Langmuir-Hinshelwood model. In the presence of anion additives, the inhibitive effect of chloride ions was larger than that of sulfate ions under acidic condition for Degussa brand titanium dioxide, but without influence using Janssen brand. Both brands, however, promoted the mineralization of o-methylbenzoic acid (o-MBA). (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
