♥ Book Title : Visible-Light Photocatalysis of Carbon-Based Materials
☯ Full Synopsis : "Carbon-based photocatalysis has been considered as an economic, safe, renewable, and clean technology, for various applications. However, the pristine carbon material is usually restricted by unsatisfactory photocatalytic efficiency and practical applications due to the insufficient solar light absorption, the low-surface area, and the fast recombination of photogenerated electron-hole pairs. Various modification strategies, such as elemental and molecular doping, preparation of mesoporous carbon materials, and combination of conductive materials, are adopted to enhance the photocatalytic activity of carbon materials. In this book, we intend to describe the great potential of efficient and low-cost carbon-based materials in various realms, such as photodegradation of organic compounds, water splitting, and selective organic transformations."Article| Yunjin Yao| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Visible Light-induced Degradation of Indigo Carmine Over ZnFe2O4/Tannin/ZnO: Role of Tannin as a Modifier and Its Degradation Mechanism
☯ Full Synopsis : "Abstract: Design and usage of efficient visible light photocatalytic systems for wastewater treatment and degradation of organic dyes are of remarkable interest in the fields of environmental protection. In this study, magnetic ZnFe2 O4, ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO, Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 and Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO nanocomposites with interfacial contact have been synthesized. The photocatalytic efficiencies of as-obtained samples are analyzed by the degradation of indigo carmine in aqueous solution under UV and visible-light. The degradation ratios of IC are 82% and 99% of IC over the Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO under the both of UV light and visible light for 90min, respectively. And after five times recycling, the photocatalytic performance of IC presence the Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO can even reach nearly 89.79%. The results demonstrate that the Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO exhibits great photocatalytic efficiency for indigo carmine (IC) compared to their constituent photocatalysts and easy separation from dye solution by magnet. The synergistic interactions between ZnFe2 O4, tannin and ZnO prolonged lifetime of photoexcited carriers leading to greater absorption in both UV and visible light. This nanocomposite was beneficial for separating the photogenerated charge carriers and facilitating electron transfer. Tannin has a decisive role for increasing the photocatalytic performance of ZnFe2 O4 due to the abundant units of phenolic groups in tannin molecules. ZnFe2 O4 makes the Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO magnetically separable in a system. This work presents new insights that tannin molecules function as great modifier to improve very impactful tannin-modified magnetic photocatalysts in removing environmental contamination. Graphical abstract: Highlights: Novel magnetic Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO nanocomposites were prepared. Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO shows a high photocatalytic efficiency under visible light. Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO photocatalyst could be easily separated from wastewater. Tannin supplies intimate interfacial contact and efficient charge separation. Photocatalytic degradation mechanism on Tannin/ZnFe2 O4 /ZnO is proposed."Article| no defined| Statement ..."
