Abstract

An apparatus for the photocatalytic oxidation of organic contaminants in fluid includes a reactor and a photocatalyst affixed to support material. Preferably, the outer wall of the reactor is constructed of material transmissive of ultraviolet radiation. The support material preferably is transmissive of ultraviolet radiation. The support material can also be an adsorbent material. Also, a method for photocatalytic oxidation of organic contaminants in fluid. Also, a method for preparation of a supported photocatalyst. Also, a supported photocatalyst adapted for the photocatalytic oxidation of organic contaminants in fluid. Also, a method for preparing a photocatalyst adapted for the photocatalytic oxidation of organic contaminants in fluid.
