Compared to the precursor, the as-obtained [Ag.sub.2]Mo[O.sub.4]/ZnO heterostructures have showed an enhanced photocatalytic activity in the photodegradation of rhodamine B (RhB).
ZnO materials with different crystal growth habits showed significant differences in catalytic performance for phenol photodegradation. The photocatalytic activity mechanism for the formation of ZnO materials with a range of different morphologies was also discussed.
Sensitization by natural dyes is thus the alternative sensitizer in photodegradation of aqueous organic contaminants [25, 26].
Structural and Textural Properties of Mixed Oxides Obtained by Thermal Evolution When Activating Hydrotalcites at 500[degrees]C before Photodegradation. Figure 4 shows the X-ray diffraction pattern of hydrotalcites calcined at 500[degrees]C.
The relationship between photodegradation efficiency of the dyes and time under UV lamp is presented in Figure 6.
The photocatalytic activities of samples were evaluated by measuring the photodegradation of Rhodamine B (RB) under visible light.
Thus, pH plays an important role in the photodegradation of the CR dye.
The chemical oxygen demand (COD) was deliberate via dichromate oxidation method, subsequent to completion of photodegradation [25].
In this study, it can be seen that pH 7 exhibited the highest photodegradation removal of lindane.
Polymer photodegradation and stabilization are extensive fields of study.
