A novel composite reactor was prepared and studied towards the degradation of organic pollutants in this work. In the reactor, a UV lamp was installed to provide energy to excite nano TiO(2), which served as photocatalyst, leading to the production of hole-electron pairs, and a three-electrode electrolysis system was used to accumulate H(2)O(2) which played(More)
Driven by the urgent demand of determining low level of 17β-estradiol (E2) present in environment, a novel and ultrasensitive photoelectrochemical (PEC) sensing platform based on anti-E2 aptamer as the biorecognition element was developed onto CdSe nanoparticles-modified TiO2 nanotube arrays. The designed PEC aptasensor exhibits excellent performances in(More)
In this paper, layer-by-layer {Hb/SiO2}n films assembled by alternate adsorption of positively charged hemoglobin (Hb) and vapor-surface sol-gel deposition of silica at 50 degrees C onto a glassy carbon electrode were reported. The result films were characterized with cyclic voltametery, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, UV-vis spectroscopy, and SEM,(More)
The present study describes an atrazine biosensor with the detection limit of 0.1 part-per-trillion (ppt). The atrazine biosensor is fabricated on tyrosinase-immobilized vertical growth TiO(2) nanotubes (Tyr/TiO(2)-NTs), based on the inhibition of tyrosinase by atrazine. The designed Tyr/TiO(2)-NTs present excellent applicability in atrazine determination,(More)
Photocatalytic degradation of organic wastes with nanosized titanium dioxide particles has been studied for a long time in order to offer an appropriate method for wastewater treatment, but its practical application is greatly limited by the slow process. In this work, an electrochemically assisted TiO2 photocatalytic system was set-up by combining a TiO2(More)
Microcystin-LR (MC-LR), an inert electrochemical species, is difficult to be detected by a simple and direct electrochemical method. In the present work, a novel photoelectrochemical sensor is developed on highly ordered and vertically aligned TiO(2) nanotubes (TiO(2) NTs) with convenient surface modification of molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) (denoted(More)
In this study, an in situ microwave activated platinum electrode was developed for the first time to completely incinerate the azo dye simulated wastewater containing methyl orange. The experiments were carried out in a circulating system under atmospheric pressure. Azo bond of methyl orange was partly broken on Pt, certain decoloration was reached, and the(More)
This paper summarizes the results of a degradation test of bromopyrogallol red (BPR) and textile dye wastewater (TDW) with a conventional three-electrode potentiostatic system in the presence of cobalt ions (electro Co(2+)-H2O2 system). H2O2, produced by the two-electron reduction of O2 at the cathode, would react with Co2+ ions, leading to the generation(More)
A simple and selective aptamer-based colorimetric method was developed for highly sensitive detection of acetamiprid, taking advantages of the sensitive target-induced colour changes that arisen from the interparticle plasmon coupling during the aggregation of Au nanoparticles (NPs). The results showed that the established method could be applied to detect(More)
Aqueous aromatic hydrocarbons are chemically stable, high toxic refractory pollutants that can only be oxidized to phenols and quinone on either Pt or traditional PbO(2) electrodes. In this study, a novel method for the electrochemical incineration of benzene homologues on superhydrophobic PbO(2) electrode (hydrophobic-PbO(2)) was proposed under mild(More)
