Abstract: 
The incorporation of titanium dioxide and copper onto activated carbon for phenol removal was evaluated. Based on catalyst contents and phenol degradation, four composites were selected and characterized. The results showed that both adsorption and photocatalytic activities were influenced by the presence and arrangement of the catalysts.
