Future works will be developed to determine the causes of photocatalysis and photodegradation mechanisms.
Accordingly, the additional TiO2 concentration accelerated the photocatalysis process and dwindled the pH value in the sphere of 0.3-0.8 g/L, dropping the Re with the rise of Iu and dp.
One of these is photocatalysis, a process where a light-sensitive material is excited with light.

Theoretically this wavelength has enough energy to induce photocatalysis in the rutile particles used in this study, which could produce additional ROS.
This type of materials opens a window of photocatalytic process improvement not only from the point of view of photocatalysis but also from the corner of photoreactor design.
To the best of our knowledge, no studies have been performed on sago effluent by means of Ti[O.sub.2] photocatalysis. SB, the solid waste, was also assessed as a potential support or adsorbent for the preparation of Ti[O.sub.2]-based mixtures.
Consequently, the proposed model can be generalized and used in the treatment of organic pollutants by heterogeneous solar photocatalysis. In addition, since our experiments, a detailed reaction mechanism could be presented considering the electronic properties of the catalyst.
This process is called photocatalysis. Proper treatment of Ti[O.sub.2] pigments can reduce photocatalysis to a great extent, thereby turning the pigment into an efficient UV protecting agent without the negative photocatalysis effects.
In addition, the research showed the ratio of photocatalysis process was five times lower than UV/[H.sub.2][O.sub.2] while the ability of recycling of photocatalyst powder could decrease the total cost of this process.
The method was also used to determine the major byproducts of TC degradation using photocatalysis.
Because of their attractive optical properties, optical NPs and nanostructures have been commonly used in various fields from nanophotonics, analytical chemistry, biotechnology, and information storage to energy applications including photovoltaics and photocatalysis [1, 2].
