Visible light-assisted degradation of a mono azo textile dye acid red 88 (AR88) was carried out in presence of titanium dioxide photocatalyst. Various operational parameters such as variation of the initial dye concentration, photocatalyst and pH on the photocatalytic degradation rate were studied. Effect of the amount of oxidants such as peroxomonosulphate (PMS) and peroxodisulphate (PDS) and the ratio of concentration of oxidant to the concentration of dye (Coxidant/Cdye) on the photocatalysed degradation rate were also investigated. Though the rate of photodegradation of the dye decreased with increase in dye concentration, the rate increased with Coxidant/Cdye ratio. Total organic carbon (TOC) analysis revealed a rapid mineralisation of AR88 in the presence of PMS. A suitable mechanism explaining the observed enhanced decolorisation and mineralisation rate of the dye with PMS is presented.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
