Solar-light activated titanium dioxide photocatalysts were prepared by hydrolysis of titanium (IV) isopropoxide with thiourea, followed by calcinations at 450 °C. The experiments demonstrated that methyl orange in aqueous solutions were successfully degraded under solar light using doped TiO2. The photocatalytic oxidation of a mono azo methyl-orange dye has been investigated in multi ion doped TiO2 and solar light. Solutions were irradiated by solar-light until high removal was achieved. It was… 


Photocatalytic activity of boron-modified TiO2 under visible light: The effect of boron content, calcination temperature and TiO2 matrix
Abstract Our research examines the photoactivity under visible light (λ > 400 nm) and surface properties (BET surface area, UV–vis absorption properties, chemical composition and crystal structure)
Mechanisms of Photocatalysis: The Reductive Degradation of Tetrachloromethane in Aqueous Titanium Dioxide Suspensions
Abstract The photocatalytic decomposition of organic compounds on semiconducting TiO2-particles under band-gap irradiation has been studied intensively in the past. While the oxidation of organic
Heterogeneous photocatalysis: fundamentals and applications to the removal of various types of aqueous pollutants
Photocatalysis is based on the double aptitude of the photocatalyst (essentially titania) to simultaneously adsorb both reactants and to absorb efficient photons. The basic fundamental principles are
Photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange as a model compound
Titanium dioxide (TiO 2 ) was used as a photocatalyst for the detoxification of water containing methyl orange (MO), which was used as a model compound. Solar radiation was used as an irradiation
TiO2/UV Photodegradation of Azo Dyes in Aqueous Solutions
Photocatalytic degradation kinetics of eleven azo dyes by TiO2/UV was studied using a Rayonet photoreactor. The degradation kinetics of azo dyes seems to be significantly influenced by their
Solar Water Detoxification: Novel TiO2 Powders as Highly Active Photocatalysts
The photocatalytic activity of a novel anatase titanium dioxide powder, namely Sachtoeben Hombikat UV 100, has been investigated and compared with that of a well-studied material (i.e., Degussa P25).
Photodegradation of 2- and 3-chlorophenol in titanium dioxide aqueous suspensions
The photocatalytic degradations of 2-chlorophenol (2CP) and 3-chlorophenol (3CP) in TiO{sub 2} aqueous suspensions at {lambda} > 340 nm have been studied. They are faster than direct photolysis at
Mechanistic studies of water detoxification in illuminated TiO2 suspensions
Abstract The destruction of toxic halogenated hydrocarbons in waste water effuents or ground water wells is a problem of growing importance in our industrial society. Since conventional methods such
Photocatalytic decomposition of 2,4-dichlorophenol in aqueous TiO2 suspensions
2,4-Dichlorophenol was decomposed in the presence of TiO2 suspensions by illumination with a low pressure u.v. light. The experiments were carried out under various pH conditions, reaction times and
