Abstract:Pt, Au and Pd deposited TiO2 have been prepared and characterised by surface analytical methods such as surface area, XRD, and scanning electron micrograph and photophysical characterisation by diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. The photocatalytic activity of the doped catalysts was ascertained by the photo-oxidation of leather dye, acid green 16 in aqueous solution illuminated with low-pressure mercury lamp ( approximately 254 nm). The effect of metal contents on the photocatalytic activity was investigated. T…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
