Received: 06 April 2024;  Published: 03 July 2024;  doi: 10.21926/cr.2403008

Abstract

Disperse porous Mn-doped ZnO-ZrO2 nanocomposites were prepared using the facile polymer-salt method. The effect of Mn content on the crystal structure, composite morphologies, their ability to photogenate the singlet oxygen, luminescence properties, and bactericidal activities were studied. The crystal structure and morphology of these materials were investigated using XRD and SEM analysis. It was found that obtained nanocomposites consist of small (~9 nm) hexagonal ZnO an [...]

Determination of Reflectance Spectra and Colorimetry of Titanium and Tungsten Oxides Obtained by Microwave-assisted Hydrothermal Synthesis

Received: 04 February 2024;  Published: 01 July 2024;  doi: 10.21926/cr.2403007

Abstract

Sustainability has driven the use of heterogeneous photocatalysis as one of the primary methods for environmental decontamination, reduction, degradation, remediation, or transformation of polluting chemical residues and purification treatment of effluents and wastewater. TiO2 is the most commonly used semiconductor in heterogeneous photocatalysis. It acquires relevance, as it has favorable properties, such as non-toxicity, stability in a wide range of pH, economic viabili [...]
