The photo-catalytic decomposition of rhodamine B was examined in aqueous nano TiO2 particles dispersions to assess effects of the microwave radiation assisted photo-catalytic process driven by UV radiation. The results of photo-catalytic degradation of rhodamine B showed that the decomposition rate increased with the microwave intensity, UV intensity, TiO2 particle dosages and the circulating fluid velocity. Addition of oxygen gas in the photo-catalytic degradation of rhodamine B increased the reaction rate. The effect of addition of H2O2 was not significant when photo-catalysis was used without additional microwave radiation or when microwave was irradiated without the use of photo-catalysts. When H2O2 was added under simultaneous use of photo-catalysis and microwave irradiation, however, considerably higher degradation reaction rates were observed. This study demonstrates that the microwave irradiation can play a very important role in photo-catalytic degradation.
