A removal of detailed organic matter by photocatalysis was investigated in terms of molecular weight (MW) distribution and fraction (hydrophobic (HP), transphilic (TP) and hydrophilic (HL)). The photooxidation with TiO, removed the majority of MW (263 daltons, 580, 865, and 43109). Effluent organic matter (EfOM) removal in wastewater was high (80%) for HP and TP components. EfOM removal from the HL fraction was however minimum, suggesting that the HL fraction may be the fraction of low activity in photocatalytic degradation. Thus, the HL fraction has to be removed from BTSE in the application of photocatalysis for the purpose of wastewater reuse
