Limited environmental pollutants have only been investigated for the feasibility of light-emitting diodes (LED) uses in photocatalytic decomposition (PD). The present study investigated the applicability of LEDs for annular photocatalytic reactors by comparing PD efficiencies of dimethyl sulfide (DMS), which has not been investigated with any LED-PD system, between photocatalytic systems utilizing conventional and various LED lamps with different wavelengths. A conventional 8-W UV/TiO(2) system exhibited a higher DMS PD efficiency as compared with UV-LED/TiO(2) system. Similarly, a conventional 8-W visible lamp/N-enhanced TiO(2) system exhibited a higher PD efficiency as compared with six visible-LED/ N-enhanced TiO(2) systems. However, the ratios of PD efficiency to the electric power consumption were rather high for the photocatalytic systems using UV- or visible-LED lamps, except for two LED lamps (yellow- and red-LED lamps), compared to the photocatalytic systems using conventional lamps. For the photocatalytic systems using LEDs, lower flow rates and input concentrations, and shorter hydraulic diameters exhibited higher DMS PD efficiencies. An FTIR analysis suggested no significant absorption of byproducts on the catalyst surface. Consequently, it was suggested that LEDs can still be energy-efficiently utilized as alternative light sources for the PD of DMS, under the operational conditions used in this study.
