Research Topic

Discoloration and mineralization of organic pollutants with photocatalyst


There are several different kinds of catalyst synthesized to degrade organic pollutant. Carbon-based catalysts are prepared to improve the conductivity of target catalysts. And C3N4-based catalysts are developed through calcining deferent precursor to enhance the utilization of visible light. Molecular imprinted Pt/TiO2 catalysts are synthesized using the sol-gel method. The catalyst will be characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM), Ultraviolet spectroscopy (UV) and BET, etc. The photoelectrocatalytic performance will be tested using the ciprofloxacin or methylene blue under the UV/visible condition using the HPLC/UV-vis for analysis.
