Microcystin-LR removal from aqueous solutions using a magnetically separable N-doped TiO2 nanocomposite under visible light irradiation.

The performance of magnetically separable N-doped TiO2 was found to be significantly improved when compared with non-magnetic N-doped TiO2 for the removal of cyanotoxin microcystin-LR from aqueous medium. The observed enhanced photocatalytic activity may be related to the presence of ferrite nanoparticles in the composition of the magnetically separable… CONTINUE READING
