Synthesis and Characterization of ZnO Nanorod Films on PET for Photocatalytic Disinfection of Water
(Science & Technology Network, Inc., 2015)
ZnO nanorods (ZnO NRs) were grown on ZnO seeded polyethylene tert-phtalate (PET) substrates obtained from recycled soda bottles at low temperatures (90 °C) from Zn2+ precursors in alkaline aqueous solution. The ZnO seeds ...
The role of seeding in the morphology and wettability of ZnO nanorods films on different substrates
(Elsevier BV, 2013)
Spray pyrolysis (SP) and spray-gel (SG) techniques were used to deposit ZnO seeds on Fluor doped tin oxide glasses (FTO), heated at 350 ¿C or 130 ¿C, and PET heated at 90 ¿C. The effect of seeding on the morphology and ...
Influence of Pyrolytic Seeds on ZnO Nanorod Growth Onto Rigid Substrates for Photocatalytic Abatement of Escherichia coli in water
(IWA Publishing, 2014)
ZnO nanorods (ZnO NRs) were grown on ZnO seeded fluorine doped tin oxide (FTO) substrates at low temperatures (90 °C) from Zn2+ precursors in alkaline aqueous solution. The ZnO seeds were deposited on the FTO substrate ...
Effect of y-irradiation on the growth of ZnO nanorod films for photocatalytic disinfection of contaminated water
(Academic Press, 2011)
The growth of ZnO nanorods on a flat substrate containing c-irradiated seeds and their ability to photocatalytically eliminate bacteria in water were studied. The seed layer was obtained, by the spray pyrolysis technique, ...
Study of the mechanical and energetic properties of pellets produce from agricultural biomass of quinoa, beans, oat, cattail and wheat
The lack of conventional fuels in rural areas in Peru drives people to burn agricultural wastes that are used as fuel. Burning these wastes produce a large amount of gaseous pollutants that harm the health of ...
Adsorption of antipyrine by activated carbons from FeCl3-activation of Tara gum
(Elsevier BV, 2018)
Activated carbons were synthesized by FeCl3-activation of Tara gum at different temperatures (400–1000 °C). The activating agent and the precursor were physically mixed at different ratios (r= FeCl3:precursor, 0.5–3.0 ...
Elimination of Escherichia coli in Water Using Cobalt Ferrite Nanoparticles: Laboratory and Pilot Plant Experiments
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019)
This paper focuses on the synthesis of cobalt ferrite nanoparticles by the sol–gel method and their photocatalytic activity to eliminate bacteria in aqueous media at two di erent scales: in a laboratory reactor and a ...
Treatment of irrigation water infested with nematodes using a solar photoreactor
(Desalination Publications, 2020)
The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of the disinfection of irrigation water loaded with the plant-parasitic nematode Meloidogyne incognita using a solar photoreactor. The photoreactor was comprised of a ...
TiO2 films on CoFe2O4 nanoparticles for the photocatalytic oxidation of rhodamine B: Influence of the alcoholic solutions
In the present work, photocatalytic oxidation of Rhodamine B solutions were performed using a composite material prepared by titanium dioxide films deposited onto cobalt ferrite nanoparticles. Cobalt ferrite nanoparticles ...
TiO2:Cex onto Al Clays for Photocatalytic Solar Water Disinfection
A novel methodology was employed to prepare new nanocomposites with photocatalytic properties based on Ce-doped TiO2 nanoparticles arranged over a layered silicate. The catalysts were porous materials formed by exfoliated ...
