Aqueous solutions of a chlorinated VOC, 3,4-dichlorobut-1-ene, as well as other pollutants, may be mineralised to carbon dioxide, water and hydrochloric acid using a sealed rotating photocatalytic reactor. The effect of pH, dissolved oxygen concentration, light intensity, pollutant concentration and rotation speed on the degradation rate have been investigated as well as competition kinetics with methanol. This reactor may be optimised to minimise competition effects in mixed solutions. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
