Abstract:A photocatalytic technique using visible light and carbon nanotube as well as nanosize Fe2O3 powder have been applied to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria present in water. It is suggested that after careful design this system can be used to make drinking water free from pathogenic bacteria.
