Antibacterial and Photocatalytic Activities of Controllable (Anatase /Rutile) Mixed Phase TiO2 Nanophotocatalyst Synthesized by Microwave- Assisted Sol-Gel Method
The idea of preparing different ratios of (anatase/rutile) TiO2 mixture has been performed by using microwave assisted sol-gel method and by applying particular concentrations of titanium (IV) isopropoxide as a single source precursor (SSP) with a constant concentration of nitric acid that has been used as structure directing agent. The effect of TiO2 composition ratio of anatase to rutile on ... Read more

Template Assisted Microwave Synthesis of rGO-ZrO2 Composites: Efficient Photocatalysts Under Visible Light
In this research, cetyltetraethyl ammonium bromide template assisted microwave procedure was utilized to synthesize reduced graphene oxide-zirconia (rGO-ZrO2) nanocomposites by varying the rGO composition (1, 2, 5 and 10 wt%).

Influence of preparation conditions on the catalytic activity of high surface
High surface area SiO2 samples were synthesized by one-step hydrolysis and co-condensation at different pH (between 3.0 and 6.0) using tetraethyl orthosilicate as the Si source and formamide as the drying additive. The effects of the presence of H2O, formamide and NH3 solution on the hydrophobic nature, textural properties and catalytic functionality of SiO2 were investigated. The physico-chemical properties of ... Read more
