  • Preparation of N-doped ZnO-loaded halloysite nanotubes catalysts with high solar-light photocatalytic activity

    N-doped ZnO nanoparticles were successfully assembled into hollow halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) by using the impregnation method. The catalysts based on N-doped ZnO-loaded HNTs nanocomposites (N-doped ZnO/HNTs) were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray (TEM-EDX), scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray (SEM-EDX), UV-vis ...

  • Photocatalytic removal of 2-nitrophenol using silver and sulfur co-doped TiO2 under natural solar light

    To overcome the drawback of poor solar light utilization brought about by the narrow photoresponse range of TiO2, a silver and sulfur co-doped TiO2 was synthesized. Using the prepared catalyst, solar photocatalytic degradation of 2-nitrophenol (2-NP) by a TiO2-based catalyst was studied for the first time. Effects of the co-doping on the structural, optical and morphological ...

  • Comparison between the photocatalytic degradation of single and binary azo dyes in TiO2 suspensions under solar light irradiation

    Textile industries discharge a large quantity of colored wastewater which is harmful to the ecosystem. In this study, two kinds of dyes were investigated: the mono azo Acid Orange 7 (AO7) and diazo Reactive Green 19 (RG19). The photocatalytic degradation of single (AO7, RG19) azo dye and binary (AO7 and RG19 mixture) azo dye aqueous solutions was photocatalyzed by commercial titanium dioxide ...

  • Aniline chlorination by in situ formed Ag–Cl complexes under simulated solar light irradiation

    Ag speciation in a chloride medium was dependent upon the Cl/Ag ratio after releasing into surface water. In this study, the photoreaction of in situ formed Ag–Cl species and their effects on aniline photochlorination were systematically investigated. Our results suggested that formation of chloroaniline was strongly relevant to the Cl/Ag ratio and could be interpreted using the ...

  • Visible and solar light photocatalytic disinfection of bacteria by N-doped TiO2

    A water treatment system was developed based on a photocatalytic process, employing immobilized N-doped TiO2, which worked under solar radiation. Batch reactor studies were conducted using an immobilized and suspended form of N-doped TiO2. Activities of Degussa P-25 and N-doped TiO2 were compared. Optimization of catalyst concentration was also carried out. Reaction rates ...

  • Bright future of solar lighting

    Hybrid solar powered lighting (HSL) isn't anything like solar light based power that changes over daylight into power. Through the utilization of optical strands, HSL catches daylight, diverting it and funneling daylight into a building. At the point when there is practically no daylight, these installations use power with the goal that consistent lighting is accomplished. Gatherer ...

  • Tips on Cleaning Your Solar Lights

    Solar lights are not a common part of life or lighting in many households but they are gaining a bit of ground. Most of them are used outdoors and this means that they will definitely get dirty after a while. These lights require regular maintenance but the fact that these lights are placed outside means that you will probably check on them less often. You will find no moving ...

  • How to Choose Solar Lights for Small Area Illumination

    Lighting is a very delicate subject. Most people do not take it as such because the assumption is that illumination is required in any area that is dark. The type of illumination is usually not considered since any kind of light is considered right. This is however not right. You cannot have the same kind of lighting in a large space as well as a small place. The lighting needs in these ...

  • Cost-efficient Solution for Already Paved Parking Lots

    The construction of parking lots is a very intensive exercise in every form. It involves a lot of heavy work and a lot of concrete as well. As is known, concrete hardens when it dries up and a large amount of prodding will get it damaged. Repairs may not leave the same smooth pavements and structures though. Parking lots always require lights because cars usually remain parked for long ...
