During a photo-induced catalytic reaction under near UV irradiation to an aqueous suspension of Ti4O2, about 95% of NO2- was oxidized to NO3-, but NH4+ was not detected. The oxidation was inhibited by the addition of mannitol or under anaerobic conditions. The nitration of HPA was observed in the presence of t-buthanol, suggesting the formation of ONOO. An ESR spectrum gave a triplet signal at g = 2.041,in the presence of NO2-, mannitol, FeSO4, and MGD, indicating the reduction of NO2- to NO.
