This study investigated the effect of EDTA as a hole scavenger on accelerating the photocatalytic decolorization of direct blue 71 as a non-degradable model pollutant with nano TiO2 powder immobilized on a cementitious bed. For this purpose, 75 mg/L of the dye was decolorized in 75 minutes with 0.03 M of EDTA at a pH level of 6 and under irradiation produced by a 60-W UV-C lamp. This is while decolorization under identical conditions but in the absence of EDTA had been accomplished in 225 minutes. The experiment, therefore, confirmed the accelerating effect of the scavenger on decolorization. The kinetics of the photocatalytic process with EDTA followed a first order reaction with a constant rate of 0.05 min-1, which is 2.5 times faster than the process without EDTA.
