Photocatalytic degradation of some aqueous suspensions of propranolol

In this work, the photocatalytic degradation of Propranolol aqueous solutions of different concentrations was investigated in the presence of TiO2 and TiO2-MoO3 catalysts. Among the two photocatalysts used, the best performance can be attributed to the TiO2-MoO3 catalyst. Optimal reaction conditions...

Description
Summary:In this work, the photocatalytic degradation of Propranolol aqueous solutions of different concentrations was investigated in the presence of TiO2 and TiO2-MoO3 catalysts. Among the two photocatalysts used, the best performance can be attributed to the TiO2-MoO3 catalyst. Optimal reaction conditions were established: Ccat. = 2 g/L; CPropranolol. = 0,25 mM; V = 20 mL, lampe – sample distance = 10 cm, when the UV-A-induced photocatalytic oxidation over the Propranolol suspensions was able to degradate almost completely the studied drug. The speed of decomposition of Propranolol was accelerated when the process was carried out at a temperature of 50°C.
