      Photodecarboxylation of phthalimides was realized under continuous-flow conditions in an advanced meso-scale photoreactor. The improved efficiency, yields and productivities of these photochemical reactions highlight the benefits of using flow versus conventional batch operation modes. Flow chemistry permits an easy combination of multiple reaction steps in series.

    2. Microwave Discharge Electrodeless Lamps. Part VIII: Continuous On-Site Solar Energy Remediation of Contaminated Water

      Satoshi Horikoshi, Tomoki Nishimura, Hideya Tsutsumi and Nick Serpone

      Article first published online: 29 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201500164

      Microwave discharge electrodeless lamps activated by microwaves from a semiconductor generator were used on-site to treat contaminated water with solar cells providing the electrical power. Such a system is able to degrade relatively high concentrations of organic pollutants and sterilize water contaminated with bacteria on-site in relatively short time.

    3. Photoelectrocatalytic Oxidation of Methyl Orange on a TiO2 Nanotubular Anode Using a Flow Cell

      María José Martín de Vidales, Laura Mais, Cristina Sáez, Pablo Cañizares, Frank C. Walsh, Manuel A. Rodrigo, Christiane de Arruda Rodrigues and Carlos Ponce de León

      Article first published online: 9 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201500085

      Methyl orange as a model organic dye is removed from wastewaters by photoelectrocatalytic oxidation on a TiO2 nanotubular array-coated anode in a flowing electrolyte cell. The photocatalytic titanium nanotubes produce hydroxyl radicals able to oxidize the organic molecules. Effects of flow rate and applied potential on the removal efficiency are investigated.

    4. Time-Resolved Fluorescence HPLC Detection Using Semiconductor Light Sources: Principles and Applications

      Stephan Landgraf

      Article first published online: 31 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ceat.201500152

      Commercial systems for simultaneous static and time-resolved fluorescence detection in HPLC systems to date employ simple intensity detection in fluorescence systems with very low sensitivity. A first prototype with a nearly practical setup for use with commercial HPLC systems has been built with a laser diode as excitation source. The application is patent-pending.
