Photocatalytic and Chemical Oxidation of Organic Compounds in Supercritical Carbon Dioxide

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The goal of the proposed research is to develop new chemistry for the removal of organic contaminants from supercritical carbon dioxide. This has application in processes used for continuous cleaning and extraction of parts and waste materials. Cleaning and extraction using supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) can be applied to the solution of a wide range of environmental and pollution prevention problems in the DOE complex. The objectives at the outset of the project were to: (1) determine if photocatalytic or other clean oxidation chemistry can be applied to the removal of organic or inorganic contaminants that are introduced into supercritical ... continued below

Description

The goal of the proposed research is to develop new chemistry for the removal of organic contaminants from supercritical carbon dioxide. This has application in processes used for continuous cleaning and extraction of parts and waste materials. Cleaning and extraction using supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) can be applied to the solution of a wide range of environmental and pollution prevention problems in the DOE complex. The objectives at the outset of the project were to: (1) determine if photocatalytic or other clean oxidation chemistry can be applied to the removal of organic or inorganic contaminants that are introduced into supercritical carbon dioxide during its use as an extraction and cleaning medium. The target will be contaminants left in solution after the bulk of solutes have been separated from the fluid phase by changing pressure and/or temperature (but not evaporating the CO2). This is applicable to development of efficient separations and will strengthen pollution prevention strategies that eliminate hazardous solvents and cleaning agents. (2) explore the use of supercritical carbon dioxide as a solvent for the photocatalytic oxidation of organic compounds and to compare it to other types of oxidation chemistry. This will add to the fundamental understanding of photocatalytic oxidation chemistry of particulate semiconductors and provide new knowledge about conditions that have relevance to the chemical fixation of carbon dioxide.
