The decomposition of chlorophenols in aqueous solution with UV-illuminated TiO2 suspensions in the presence of manganese ions was studied. It was found that the removal rate of chlorophenols would be the highest at pH 3 in the presence of 1.18×10−4 M manganese ion. The effect of ionic strength on the 2-CP decomposition can be ignored in the range from 0.1 to 0.005 M for NaClO4. This study is also to explore the relationship between the adsorption rate and reaction rate. Results showed that the more the adsorption rate the more the decomposition rate for the three chlorophenols. Manganese ions can increase the photocatalytic oxidation of 2-chlorophenol in terms of DOC. The relationship between temperature and reaction rate for 2-CP is k = 0.0043T - 1.2146.
