[Kinetics of alkylphenols degradation in aqueous phase with excilamp irradiation].


PMID 25158497

Abstract

The 206 nm irradiation from excilamp was able to directly photo-degrade 4-nonylphenol (4-NP) and 4-octylphenol (4-OP), but it could not oxidize them completely into CO2. Under the same irradiation condition, the removal efficiency of 4-OP was higher than that of 4-NP. Pseudo-first order kinetic model and modified kinetic model were used to fit the kinetics of photo-degradation process, and the direct photolysis rate constants under 206 nm UV irradiation were obtained. The experimental results demonstrated that the photolysis rate constant was higher at lower initial concentration of alkylphenols. Two kinetic models were appropriate for the direct photolysis of alkylphenols at low concentration, but the modified model did not fit for high concentrations. Degradation rate can be obviously enhanced when adding H2O2 into the reaction, but the TOC removal was distinct only when the dosage of H2O2 was high. At last, we concluded that the direct photolysis rate constant k(d) was 0.032 8 min(-1) and the reaction rate constant k(pH) between 4-OP and H2O2 was 17.4520 L x (mol x min)(-1).
