Kinetic study of photocatalytic degradation of Ifos famide in a microchannel and simulation

Abstract : Among the possible solutions for the intensification of photocatalytic reactions, the use of microreactors is emerging. Such an approach was applied to the photodegradation of Ifosfamide in a flow microreactor with an immobilized catalyst composed of ZnO sensitized with CuInZnxS2+x quantum dots. The conversion yield at a low flow rate was investigated. A computational flow simulation allows to determine an apparent constant rate and the diffusion coefficient towards the photocatalyst surface. Photocatalytic degradation of Ifosfamide can be fitted by the Langmuir-Hinshelwood model. The Sherwood number and the average value of Damköhler show that the photocatalytic reaction under our experimental conditions is limited by the mass transfer.
