Mechanochemical Synthesis of TiO2 Nanocomposites as Photocatalysts for Benzyl Alcohol Photo-Oxidation
TiO2 (anatase phase) has excellent photocatalytic performance and different methods have been reported to overcome its main limitation of high band gap energy. In this work, TiO2-magnetically-separable nanocomposites ...
Wheat bran valorisation: Towards photocatalytic nanomaterials for benzyl alcohol photo-oxidation
In this work, we have successfully synthesized a set of titania photocatalytic nanocomposites by the incorporation of different TiO2 content on wheat bran residues. The obtained catalysts were characterized by different ...
Efficient and environmentally friendly microwave-assisted synthesis of catalytically active magnetic metallic Ni nanoparticle
(ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering, 2017)
Pure magnetic metallic nickel was synthesized by a simple and fast microwave-assisted method using a monomode microwave reactor. Nickel chloride was employed as metal precursor, while an environmental-friendly mixture of ...
Continuous flow conversion of biomass-derived methyl levulinate into gamma valerolactone using functional metal organic frameworks
Zirconium based metal organic framework, UiO-66 (Zr), was successfully synthesized via solvothermal method, followed by various characterization including XRD, thermal analysis, N2 physisorption and TEM. As-synthesized ...
Facile mechanochemical modification of g-C3N4 for selective photo-oxidation of benzyl alcohol
Graphitic carbon nitride enriched with ZnO or Fe2O3 were synthesized using a simple one-pot mechanochemical method. By using this method, composite samples were synthetized without the production of any potentially hazardous ...
