Parylene films loaded with TiO2 are reported as photocatalysts in azo dye discoloration processes. The TiO2 loading of the parylene film was 0.32% (w/w) and the amount of TiO2 on the film was about two orders of magnitude below the TiO2 added in suspension to discolore the same solution of Methyl Orange used as a probe. The parylene/TiO2 films showed a similar activity in the presence of O2 or H2O2 during the discoloration of dyes. This shows the efficient role of O2 as ecb scavenger. The… CONTINUE READING
