The experiment was performed in the reactor with suspended anatase-type titanium dioxide particles. The adsorption amount increased rapidly with an increasing pH value from pH 2 to 5 and remained constant over pH 5. The adsorption amount of Cu(2+) increased with temperature from 15 degrees C to 40 degrees C. The adsorption equilibrium constant (K(ads)) was(More)
The photocatalytic property of TiO(2) is utilized to sterilize the Giardia lamblia in an aqueous solution in this study. The TiO(2) colloidal solution used for the film was prepared by the modified hydrothermal method and it was directly coated on a UV-lamp, which was set up using a photoreactor manufactured in our laboratory. The TiO(2) film was very(More)
Experiments were performed to investigate the effects of operating parameters, such as air-inflow rate, UV-light intensity, and film thickness of the photocatalyst, on the photo-decomposition efficiency of paraquat in an immersion-type reactor with TiO2 immobilized by three kinds of methods on the glass tube of UV lamps. As the number of TiO2 coating-time(More)
Photodegradation experiments of bisphenol-A (BPA) were performed with TiO(2) particles as a photocatalyst, where particles were immobilized using a titanium sol-solution synthesized by a sol-gel method. The effects of immobilized TiO(2)-film thickness, UV radiation intensity, and pH on the photodegradation of BPA were investigated. Apparent rate constant of(More)
Alachlor photodegradation was performed using TiO(2), which was synthesized by a modified sol-gel method. The thickness of a TiO(2) film immobilised by a 5-time dip-coating was 174 nm and the average diameter of TiO(2) particles was about 10-15 nm in SEM images. The crystal structure of a TiO(2) film calcinated at 300 degrees C for 1 h was observed as a(More)
The adsorption experiment of nickel ion [Ni(II)] on gamma-type alumina by a differential bed reactor in aqueous solutions was investigated to determine the adsorption characteristics and overall adsorption rate. The adsorbed amount increased rapidly with pH from pH 2 to 6 and kept constant over pH 6. The adsorbed amount of Ni(II) increased with temperature(More)
Copper sulfide, CuS, was synthesized by an aqueous sonochemical method and it was investigated the effect of pH on crystal characteristics of CuS and IR absorbance. The formed CuS has main peaks as 27.68 degrees, 29.28 degrees, 31.79 degrees, 32.85 degrees, 47.94 degrees, 52.72 degrees and 59.3 degrees with the hexagonal structure. Average diameter of CuS(More)
The effect of in situ photodeposited ferric ion onto TiO2 surface on the degradation of alachlor was investigated in the presence of the UV radiation. The photodegradation rate of alachlor could be described as an apparent first order. The rate constant (K(a)) of alachlor increased from 0.021 to 0.060 h(-1) as the number of coating times increased from 1-(More)
It is difficult to efficiently remove gaseous styrene using a TiO(2) film-coated photoreactor under UV light. Therefore, we used a hybrid system consisting of a carbon-doped TiO(2) (C-TiO(2)) film and a media-packed biofilter in order to enhance the removal efficiency (RE) of gaseous styrene compared to that of a pure (undoped) TiO(2) photoreactor. The(More)
In this work, it was investigated the effect of solubility in supercritical CO2 on the nickel-electroplating characteristics. The plating characteristics could be controlled by electric resistance and dispersion in emulsion as well. CO2 concentration had better be controlled at lower concentration than 50 CO2 wt% to decrease electric resistance since(More)
