Multistep Loading of Titania Nanoparticles in the Mesopores of SBA-15 for Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity
Abstract:A multistep deposition of anatase nanoparticles was employed to incorporate high amounts of titania into the mesopores of SBA-15. Anatase nanoparticles were synthesized and deposited following the Acid Catalyzed Sol Gel method. With this method, the size of the anatase nanoparticles can be controlled and therefore, the titania loading into the mesopores of SBA-15 can be controlled. Through multistep deposition of anatase nanoparticles, a further increase of titania loading into the mesoporous channels can be obtained. For the degradation of Rhodamine-6G, the samples synthesized by multistep deposition showed an enhanced photocatalytic activity.
