Abstract:The electron beam (EB) irradiation effects of TiO2 deposited on carbon nanofibers (CNFs) were studied aiming the improvement of the photocatalytic activity. The EB irradiation contributed to an increase in crystallinity of the anatase resulting an improvement of the photocatalytic activity through the oxidation (ionization) of the doped TiO2 and leading to uniform distribution TiO2 particles on the CNFs surface. The photoactivity of the catalyst was measured by the decoloration of the methylene blue (MB) with time under UV irradiation.
