A photocatalytic decomposition of benzene using liquid phase plasma (LPP) and photocatalyst is proposed. This reaction produced hydrogen as a gaseous product and simultaneously produced carbon black. Liquid benzene was decomposed by photocatalytic reaction using the LPP. The irradiation effect of the LPP applied as a light source in relation to the decomposition of benzene and hydrogen generation was investigated. Hydrogen production and toluene removal have been characterized from photocatalytic decomposition of benzene on visible light photocatalysts. Effect of irradiation of the LPP was discussed concerning with the hydrogen production. Simultaneous benzene decomposition and H2 evolution arose by photocatalytic decomposition using LPP. Hydrogen was produced from the photocatalytic decomposition of benzene with LPP irradiation. Decomposition of benzene and hydrogen evolution was increased by the metal loading on the TiO2 surface. Fine carbon black was produced simultaneously with hydrogen generation in the photocatalytic decomposition of benzene by LPP irradiation
