Novel and ecofriendly synthesis of Ag-TiO2-G photocatalyst and investigate the effect of graphene in photodegradation of an organic pollutant in water

Farnosh Tavakoli; Alireza Badiei; Jahan Bakhsh Ghasemi

Volume 4, Issue 1 , January 2019, Pages 31-39


  In this paper, Ag-TiO2-Graphene (Ag-TiO2-G) photocatalyst is synthesized via an economic and green rout. Pranus Cerasus is applied as a green reducing agent due to the presence of anthocyanin pigment. The anthocyanin molecules are responsible for the red color of the prunus cerasus seeds. The nanocmposites ...  Read More
