Chapter
Full-text available
Photocatalysts in Advanced Oxidation Processes for Wastewater Treatment comprehensively covers a range of topics aiming to promote the implementation of photocatalysis at large scale through the provision of facile and green methods for catalysts synthesis and elucidation of pollutants degradation mechanisms. This book is divided into two main part...

Pesticides are frequently used in agricultural fields to control weeds and pests; however, their excessive use has detrimental effects on the environment including a threat to endangered plant species. Notably, prolonged exposure to water containing‐pesticides or agricultural lands runoff can cause adverse skin, neurological system related problems...

Pyrochar-AgBr (DCG-AgBr) produced from discarded chewing gum for the decontamination of trichlorophenol (2,4,5-TCP) is reported. The DCG-AgBr specific surface area (249.5 m 2 /g), the pore volume of 0.998 cm 3 /g, surface functional groups and thermal analysis were established. The 2,4,5-TCP removal efficiency at 10 mg/L was estimated to be $96% an...

The use of banana peel as a sustainable and low-cost precursor for the fabrication of effective biochar was exploited. Here, calcined magnetic biochar (CMB) was fabricated and characterized. CMB possesses surface acidic functional groups (-OH and COO −), porous structures, high saturation magnetization (39.55 emu/g), and larger surface area than th...
