  • Photocatalytic degradation of supra black–T dye on charcoal under sunlight

    Azo dyes are used in many industries such as carpet manufacturing, textiles, paint, ink, plastics and cosmetics production processes. The coloured industrial effluent can pose serious problems in the aquatic environment. It is possible to get complete mineralisation of organic pollutants in water by photocatalysts. This study was carried out to examine the feasibility to remove supra black–T dye ...
