Plasmonic metal decorated titanium dioxide thin films for enhanced photodegradation of organic contaminants
Photocatalysis using titanium dioxide as photocatalyst is an efficient way for the removal of organic contaminants in water using solar energy. In this study, thin films of copper and silver were deposited on fused ...
Desalination and seawater quality at Green Point, Cape Town: A study on the effects of marine sewage outfalls
(Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), 2017)
This paper presents our collection methods, laboratory protocols and findings in respect of sewage pollution affecting seawater and marine organisms in Table Bay, Cape Town, South Africa, then moves to consider ...
Silver/carbon codoped titanium dioxide photocatalyst for improved dye degradation under visible light
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2017)
Herein, we report the synthesis of quartz supported TiO2 photocatalysts codoped with carbon and silver through the hydrolysis of titanium tetrachloride followed by calcination at 500°C. The prepared samples were characterized ...
Treatment of persistent organic pollutants in wastewater using hydrodynamic cavitation in synergy with advanced oxidation process
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are very tenacious wastewater contaminants. The consequences of their existence have been acknowledged for negatively affecting the ecosystem with specific impact upon endocrine disruption ...
Synthesis and characterization of carbon doped TiO2 photocatalysts supported on stainless steel mesh by sol-gel method
(Korean Carbon Society, 2017)
This study synthesized pure anatase carbon doped TiO2 photocatalysts supported on a stainless steel mesh using a sol-gel solution of 8% polyacrylonitrile (PAN)/dimethylformamide (DMF)/TiCl4. The influence of the pyrolysis ...
