A study of the phenol, 4-chlorophenol and 4-bromophenol aqueous solutions photolysis under UV-irradiation from capacitive discharge KrCl- and XeBr-excilamps at different wavelengths have been undertaken. To specify photolysis efficiency the irradiated solutions have been investigated by spectroscopic methods. To account for obtained results, the quantum-mechanical computation has been invoked.
