Abstract: In this report, catalytic methodologies are applied in the breaking down the chemical structures of WCO (waste cooking oil) to study and explore the efficiency in degrading waste WCO. Amongst the different types of catalytic synthesis methods available, photo-catalyst has drawn much attention due to its low in cost, chemical stability, and good efficiency results. [12]. Photocatalytic treatment has shown some promising results in eliminating fatty acids methyl ester (FAME) by 33.54% for biodiesel, a study conducted by D.C. Panadare, et al. [2] . In another study done by Xin al. on the photocatalytic decomposition of oleic acid, it was found that modifying the catalyst TiO2 with GO (graphene oxide) helps to further enhance its photo-catalytic activity, which further affects its decomposition results [12]. In this catalytic setup, photocatalyst and electrocatalysis are being integrated together to study the behaviour and characteristics of the WCO hydro-carbons chains during the degradation process using Titanium oxide (TiO2).
