Article
This study aims to comparatively assess TiO2 and ZnO catalysts in photodegradation of aqueous acetaminophen solution. Commercial TiO2 (anatase and rutile phases), synthetic TiO2 (rutile) commercial ZnO (wurtzite), and synthetic ZnO (wurtzite) are all described; the synthetic ZnO and TiO2 were synthesized by thermal precipitation method. XRD, SEM, U...
Article
Natural waters are prone to pollution with organic contaminants, waste pharmaceuticals being an example. Pharmaceutical compounds are widely detected in different surface waters, such as lakes and rivers. Removal of such contaminants from water is therefore imperative. Different strategies are commonly followed such as adsorption, chlorination, ozo...

The abuse of ground water resources practiced by Israeli settlement. Moreover, settlers dispose their sewage randomly in different Palestinian areas. This causes more contamination in ground waters. Therefore, purification and recycling of water will become a necessity in the near future in Palestine and the region. The most common pollutants are:...

Metal chalcogenide thin film electrodes are known to be unstable under PEC conditions. We stabilize them and increase their light-to-electricity conversion efficiency. The maximum known conversion efficiency of such electrodes is too low, less than 1%, and the best known values are aroung 10% only. We managed to reach up to 18% values while having soundly stable systems.
