With the increase demand for clean water, there are more and more research focused on the development of materials and processes for water treatment recently.
TiO2 has been widely used in environmental decontamination field because of its wide band gap. Through TiO2 photo-catalysis process, most of pollutants such as organic compounds can be mineralized to harmless compounds. However, due to the high cost, the application of TiO 2 photo-catalysis treatment has been hindered. At the same time, as the reverse osmosis technology is widely applied in water desalination around the world, it is urgent to find an environmental friendly and economical way to dispose this industry by-product, namely RO concentrates.
In this study, Bi2O3/TiO2 heterojunction nanocomposites synthesized to reduce the cost of this catalyst. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
