We present a novel high throughput photocatalyst efficiency assessment method based on 96-well microplates and UV-Vis spectroscopy. We demonstrate the reproducibility of the method using methyl orange (MO) decomposition, and compare kinetic data obtained with those provided in the literature for large conventional photoreactors. To demonstrate the example of the method capabilities, we rapidly screened the effects of salts, potentially present in wastewater, on kinetic rates of MO decomposition, and briefly discuss the obtained data comparing it with the existing literature obtained using conventional photoreactors.
