An experimental investigation was carried out in photocatalytic reactors exposed to artificial UV source to
study the kinetic and degradation of model organic compound benzoic acid. The apparent rate constant
was determined in two different situations where either the concentration of organic compound or
catalyst is kept constant in a batch reactor. The effect of concentrations and the dosage of photocatalyst
on the degradation of benzoic acid in batch and continuous tank reactor were investigated.
