A new method of degradation of the pollutants present in seawater using titanium dioxide(TiO2P25) and Polyamide (PA) with a specific design of a reactor, which circulates the flow inside of it using a peristaltic pump, was considered. Experiments were carried out in a batch re-circulation reactor by varying the concentration of TiO2 and PA. Samples were collected on hourly basis and the parameters total organic carbon (TOC), total inorganic carbon (TIC), chemical oxygen demand (COD), total dissolved solids (TDS) and the pH was evaluated to study the effect of degradation of pollutants present in the seawater by solar nano photo catalysis.
