Objectives
1. Study the characteristics of an efficient VUV photocatalysis process for simultaneous degradation of multiple indoor air pollutants; 2. Develop a multi-functional mesoporous TiO2 photocatalyst with strong photocatalytic oxidation activity, high capability of ozone depletion and utilization; 3. Investigate the mechanism and kinetic of the degradation of indoor air pollutants under VUV photocatalysis. 4. To study the effects of varying environmental and operational factors on the performance for system optimization.
