Photoelectrocatalytic degradation of 2,4-dichlorophenol in a TiO2 nanotube-coated disc flow reactor
Photoelectrocatalytic (PEC) water treatment is a promising technology for organic pollution abatement. Much of the prior research focused on material discovery and optimization. However, challenges exist in scaling-up PEC ...
Effect of palladium on gold in core-shell catalyst for electrooxidation of ethanol in alkaline medium
In this paper the effect of small amounts of palladium deposited on gold nanoparticles supported on Vulcan XC-72 carbon (core-shell structure denoted Au@Pd/C) is studied. Different nominal atomic compositional ratios of ...
Confined benzene within InOF-1: Contrasting CO2 and SO2 capture behaviours
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020)
The confinement of small amounts of benzene in InOF-1 (Bz@InOF-1) shows a contradictory behavior in the capture of CO2 and SO2. While the capture of CO2 is increased 1.6 times, compared to the pristine material, the capture ...
Portable point-of-use photoelectrocatalytic device provides rapid water disinfection
Portable water purification devices are needed to provide safe drinking water in rural communities, developing communities with low quality centralized water distribution, and military or recreational applications. Filtration, ...
Scaling up photoelectrocatalytic reactors: A TiO2 nanotube-coated disc compound reactor effectively degrades acetaminophen
(Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019)
Multiple discs coated with hierarchically-organized TiO2 anatase nanotubes served as photoelectrodes in a novel annular photoelectrocatalytic reactor. Electrochemical characterization showed light irradiation enhanced the ...
A theoretical approach of the ethanol adsorption on Au(100), Au(110) and Au(111) surfaces
The adsorption of ethanol on Au(100), Au(110) and Au(111) surfaces was studied using electronic structure calculations under the scheme of the density functional theory (DFT) with van der Waals corrections, vdW-DF2 and PBE ...
Nanostructured Screen-Printed Electrodes Modified with Self-Assembled Monolayers for Determination of Metronidazole in Different Matrices
(Sociedade Brasileira de Quimica, 2014)
This paper describes the development of a sensor for the determination of metronidazole using a simple method involving the creation of nanoporous structures on gold electrodes followed by modification with self-assembled ...
