Photodegradation of gas phase benzene by SnO2 nanoparticles has been studied in humid air, dry air and N2 by using a tubular photoreactor. The SnO2 nanoparticles are synthesized by the oxidation of anhydrous stannic chloride (SnCl4) in a propane/air turbulent flame. Direct hole oxidation and the ·OH radical mechanisms have been discussed based on experimental results. The goal of this research is to explore a viable and efficient alternative photocatalyst and photocatalytic process, in particular, for humidity-tolerant photocatalyst or photocatalytic process in environmental applications.
