Abstract Heterogeneous copper catalyst was developed using the mesoporous molecular sieve MCM-41 as the catalyst support. Copper was impregnated onto the support. Catalysts with different copper loadings were obtained. The performance of the developed catalysts was evaluated in photochemically enhanced oxidation of phenol using hydrogen peroxide as the oxidant. The catalyst was found to significantly increase the oxidation rate and enhance the removal level of phenol with UV light present. The effects of copper loading on the catalyst, photo (UV), H2O2 concentration, and catalyst dosage on the photo-oxidation of phenol were studied. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
