Title: Stably Photocatalytic Decomposition of Rhodamine-B by M3+ ions Doped ZrO2-ZnO Composite under Simulant Solar Light Irradiation
Biography: Lu Qiu
The M13+-ZnO /M23+-ZrO2 catalyst prepared by sol-gel method exhibited highly and stably photocatalytic performance in degradation of Rhodamine-B under simulant solar light irradiation. In3+ doping ZnO improved ZnO providing in the composite. Composition of ZnO with Ga3+-ZrO2 led to enhancement of ultraviolet light absorbance, promoting the catalytic activity and give highest activity. This is higher one time than Sm doping composite. Based on the results of Sm doping composite by prepared by the same hydrothermal method, We look forward to the discovery of a new photocatalyst that is higher in activity and stability than the P-25.
