Photocatalyst from one-dimensional TiO2 nanowires/synthetic zeolite composites
One-dimensional TiO2 nanowires were fabricated on synthetic zeolite by simple sol–gel and hydrothermal alkali melting synthesis method in order to maximize the specific surface area and photocatalytic performance as well as the retrievability. Effect of reaction time, pH and calcining temperature on structure and photocatalytic activity of the composite photocatalysts were discussed. The decolouration of methylene blue dye in water can rapidly reach to 90% with as-synthetised one-dimensional TiO2 nanowires/synthetic zeolite composite after 60 min under the irradiation of UV light, indicating the potential application of as-obtained photocatalysts in wastewater treatment.
