Abstract Share this page

Titanium dioxide was shown to be generally effective as a catalyst for photobleaching many structural classes of organic dyes in aqueous solution, using visible light. However, results from study of 15 dyes indicate that photobleaching rates differ significantly from families of dyes with different functionalities, and are dependent on the light source and crystalline form of TiO2 used. Sorption characteristic on the TiO2 surface and the aqueous solubility of the dyes also play an important role in the photobleaching rate. Kinetic analysis indicates that the dye photobleaching rates can usually be approximated as pseudo-first-order kinetics. In addition to the generally proposed photocatalytic oxidation mechanism for TiO2 reactions, we observed evidence for two kinds of electron transfer mechanisms that are “photosensitized reduction” and “photosensitized oxidation”. Natural sunlight was effectively used to photobleach some of the dyes.
