Modeling adsorption and photocatalytic treatment of recalcitrant contaminant on multi-walled carbon/TiO2 nanocomposite
A nanocomposite photocatalyst consisting of titanium dioxide (TiO2) supported on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) has been successfully prepared and used for the treatment of wastewater contaminated with tetracycline (TC), a recalcitrant antibiotic pollutant. The TiO2/MCNT composites were prepared by a simple evaporation-drying method. The properties of MWCNT/TiO2 were optimized by dispersing different amounts of TiO2 onto MWCNT. The structural and optical characteristics of the nano-engineered photocatalyst composite were characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) techniques. Photocatalytic ...
