On illumination with light of wavelength 365nm phenol undergoes degradation on the surface of ZrO(2). The rate of degradation enhances linearly with the concentration of phenol and also the light intensity but decreases with increase of pH. The photonic efficiency of degradation is higher with illumination at 254nm than with 365nm. The diffuse reflectance spectral study suggests phenol-sensitized activation of ZrO(2) with 365nm light. TiO(2), Fe(2)O(3), CuO, ZnO, ZnS, Nb(2)O(5) and CdO particles enhance the photodegradation on ZrO(2), indicating inter-particle charge-transfer. Determination of size of the particles under suspension, by light scattering technique, shows agglomeration of particles supporting the proposition of charge-transfer between particles.
