Synthesis of TiO2 Supported on SBA-15 Using Different Method and Their Photocatalytic Activity
Abstract:SBA-15 mesoporous materials were successfully prepared by the conventional hydrothermal method and TiO2 nanoparticles were supported on them using different loading methods. The synthesized materials were characterized and their activity as photocatalysts for the decomposition of methylene blue was evaluated. The loading of titanium dioxide on the framework of SBA-15 makes the pore diameter and pore volume decrease compared to that of SBA-15. The chelating method causes the support to have a much better dispersion capacity for TiO2 particles as compared to the other two methods. The TiO2 supported by chelating method showed the highest photocatalytic activity among the photocatalysts prepared by different method.
