Abstract

The effects of mixing condition by baffles, inlet concentration and face velocity on the photocatalytic degradation (PCD) of gaseous acetone over thin-film TiO2 have been examined in a continuous flow system. The PCD rate increased upon installing baffles at a low inlet concentration and a high face velocity.
