A series of hydroxyapatite (HAP), 1wt% Ag-TiO(2) (AT1), 1wt% Ag-HAP and 5wt% AT1/HAP composite catalysts were prepared by incipient wetness and mechanical mixing methods. They were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), FT-IR, SEM and ESCA analyses and their photocatalytic bactericidal activities were measured in suspension using Escherichia coli (E… CONTINUE READING
