The TiO2/HZSM-11 materials were synthesized using titanium isopropoxide as a TiO2 precursor and HZSM-11 a medium pore size zeolite with high thermal and chemical resistance as support. The amount of titanium isopropoxide was varied in order to obtain TiO2 concentrations of 3, 10, 20, 30 and 50 wt% in the final material. They were characterized by a series(More)
Low-frequency ultrasound (LFUS) irradiation induces morphological, optical and surface changes in the commercial nano-TiO(2)-based photocatalyst, Evonik-Degussa P-25. Low-temperature electron spin resonance (ESR) measurements performed on this material provided the first experimental evidence for the formation of oxygen vacancies (V(o)), which were also(More)
A series of mesoporous titania materials modified with tungstophosphoric acid (TPA) were successfully synthesized by using urea as low-cost template via sol-gel reactions, followed by removing the urea by extraction with water. They were characterized by FT-IR, 31P MAS-NMR, XRD, DTA-TGA, DRS, TEM and BET. The samples presented mesopores with a diameter(More)
Under air atmosphere, the photocatalytic discoloration of malachite green (MG) aqueous solutions (a triphenylmethane dye) in the presence of TiO(2) and UV light followed an oxidative pathway, involving an N-demethylation process evidenced by a blue shifting of the main absorption band with a maximum at 618 nm. This oxidative process was affected by the(More)
Titania hollow spheres were synthesized using silica nanospheres as the template. The core was removed using NaOH solution. They were subsequently impregnated with tungstophosphoric acid (TPA) solutions and annealed at two different temperatures (100 and 500 °C). These materials were characterized by several physicochemical techniques (XRD, BET, SEM, DRS,(More)
