As a consequence, the reaction rate can be boosted by several orders of magnitude. g. acids) and enzymes are important types of catalysts, only heterogeneous catalysts, which comprise solids used in reactions with liquids or gases, are relevant in the scope of the present book. Most heterogeneous catalysts, such as zeolites, Ni Raney and any other, are thermally activated, and this is an obvious difference with photocatalysts.

4). 1 Air and Water Treatment Photocatalytic reactions are characterized by the need of irradiation of the catalyst to activate the process. As a consequence, an appropriate radiation source, either artificial or the sun, is required in photocatalytic reactors. Artificial sources can be arc lamps, incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs); the radiation can be concentrated or redirected with the help of reflectors or fibre optics. Alternatively, solar radiation can be directly collected by the reactor or with the help of reflectors of different shapes, materials and concentration ratios (Malato et al.

An important drawback of TiO2 photocatalysis, like for other advanced oxidation technologies (AOTs), is the relatively high operating costs compared to conventional biological treatments, and particularly the slow kinetics compared to the homogeneous photo-Fenton reaction, which makes the latter more interesting for the scientific community despite the consumption of chemicals involved.
