Degradation of 2-chlorophenol by $$gamma$$-ray irradiation in zeolite/water mixtures

Kumagai, Yuta  

Radiation-induced degradation of 2-chlorophenol (2-ClPh) in zeolite/water mixtures was studied in order to consider a possibility of adsorption on zeolites to improve efficiencies of irradiation treatments of water contaminated by organic compounds. The degradation of 2-ClPh by $$gamma$$-ray irradiation was investigated as a model compound. The degradation was evaluated by chloride ion (Cl$$^{-}$$) production. A high concentration of Cl$$^{-}$$ was observed after the irradiation of a mixture with a mordenite-type zeolite (NaMOR), whereas A-type and X-type zeolites showed no significant effect. Therefore, for the mixture with NaMOR, effects of pH of the solution and of the 2-ClPh concentration were examined. At pH 5.7, the excess production of Cl$$^{-}$$ was induced by the addition of NaMOR. Concurrently, adsorption of 2-ClPh on NaMOR was observed. When the mixture contained a higher concentration of 2-ClPh at pH 5.7, the Cl$$^{-}$$ production increased. The adsorption of 2-ClPh also increased with increasing concentration. The results suggest that organics adsorbed on zeolites are decomposed by irradiation effectively at high adsorption concentrations.
