Photocatalytic Oxidation of Thiosulphate Ion in Presence of Ammonium PhosphomolybdateAuthor(s): Mahendra Chaudhary, Rameshwer Ameta and Suresh C. Ameta
Photocatalytic oxidation of thiosulphate over ammonium phosphomolybdate powder was carried out. The progress of reaction was observed volumetrically. The effect of variation of different parameters like pH, concentration of thiosulphate ion, amount of photocatalyst, light intensity, particle size etc. on the rate of photocatalytic oxidation was observed. A tentative mechanism for this reaction has been proposed.
