Ru doped titania was prepared by the impregnation method and examined for the photocatalytic degradation of 2-chlorophenol at ambient conditions. Ru/TiO2photocatalysts with metal loadings of 0.2, 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8 wt% were prepared and characterized using TEM, XRD, FTIR, SBETand EDX analyses. The degradation of 2-chlorophenol (2-CP) in the aqueous phase was investigated under irradiation at 254 nm, employing either photodegradation in the presence of titania, Ru doped titania or photolysis, to compare the efficiency of these photoinduced advanced oxidation techniques. Photocatalysis under visible irradiation was also investigated. The removal efficiency arrived at 50% using 0.2% Ru/TiO2catalyst.
