A kind of P-25 TiO2 films coated nickel foam was synthesized by a facile dip-coating/calcination route, and used to fabricate a continuous-flow three-phase photocatalytic reactor. The morphology, crystal phase structure, surface composition and specific surface area of P-25 films coated nickel foam were investigated by field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM), X-ray diffractometer (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and nitrogen adsorption-desorption measurements, respectively. The results indicated that the coated/ calcined P-25 films had the porous surface structure fabricated by nano-sized titanium dioxide consisted of two crystal phases and incorporated with a NiO interlayer. The increase of P-25 contents enhanced the specific surface area; however, 20 percent of initial P-25 sol would result in visible large cracks because of too high P-25 content and consequently cause the peeling of films. The photocatalytic activities of nickel foam with different coating amounts of P-25 for the degradation of quinoline aqueous solutions were investigated with a continuous-flow three-phase photocatalytic reactor based on the P-25 films coated nickel foam. The results suggested that nickel foam coated with 10 percent of P-25 sol had an optimal photocatalytic activity for the degradation of quinoline aqueous solutions. The continuous-flow three-phase photocatalytic reactor fabricated with P-25 films coated nickel foam with an optimal P-25 coating amount shows high photocatalytic activity and stability for the degradation of quinoline aqueous solutions and industrial wastewater. The treated industrial wastewater meets the international discharge standard.
