Degradation of phenol was used as a model reaction toinvestigate the photocatalytic properties of cerium-doped (0.1% atomic nominal)TiO2 catalyst, in the absence and presence of oxidants: persulphate(PS) or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Parallel experimentshave been performed using either artificial ultraviolet and visible light orsunlight during spring-summer seasons in La Plata city (34.90°S, 57.92°W,15masl) in a batch reactor. The best result was found with doped material and 7.0mM of PS: total mineralization (250mM phenol) after 5 hours of solar exposition. Differentintermediates were identified for the studied treatments.
