Abstract:This paper reviews the photocatalytic activity of Ti02 toward the degradation of organic compounds in aqueous solutions a t low concentrations. The photocatalytic activity of both polycrystalline samples and thin films can be related to the method of preparation of the catalyst. The increase in the catalytic activity of T i 0 2 when certain metals such as silver, gold, and palladium are deposited on the surface is also discussed. These catalysts have potential use in removing harmful carcinogens from water as … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research 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 students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
