We report a facile low-cost thermal polymerization method of urea to produce 2D carbon nitride nanosheets (GCN) as confirmed via a plethora of morphological and structural characterization techniques. The GCN electrodes showed excellent electrochemical performance with a very wide operating voltage window upon their use as positive and negative pol...
Article
Lead chromate, PbCrO4, is a semiconductor material exhibiting narrow bandgap energy indicating its promising visible-light-driven photocatalytic activity. However, very few papers reported the utilization of PbCrO4 as a photocatalyst. Herein, we report a simple one-pot room-temperature method that was employed for the synthesis of a novel PbCrO4/Zn...
Chapter
Hydrogen production via visible-light-driven photocatalytic processes based on the permanentely available sunlight energy is considered as one of the most efficient strategies for solving energy issues facing human society and environmental crisis. TiO2-based phototcatalysts have been reported to be the most common and efficient photocatalysts, esp...
Article
Visible-light-driven photocatalysis can be considered as an eco-friendly approach for the effective treatment of wastewater, where 2D g-C3N4-based photocatalysts exhibited outstanding performance in this approach. Thus, a green simple one-pot ultrasonic method was utilized for the first time, with in-situ reduction of Ag⁺ and GO, to synthesize an i...
Article
Herein, we report on the defect engineering of BiPO4 nanorods (NRs) via a facile room-temperature template-free co-precipitation method, followed by hydrogen treatment. The hydrogen treatment temperature determined the type of induced defects in the fabricated BiPO4 NRs and consequently their photocatalytic performance. Upon varying the annealing t...

Pristine and Co-doped TiO 2 mesocrystals have been synthesized via a simple sol–gel method and their antimicrobial activity has been investigated. The antimicrobial performance was evaluated in terms of zone of inhibition, minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), antibiofilm activity, and effect of UV illumination in liquid media. The Co-doped TiO 2...
Article
A facile one-pot method was utilized at room-temperature for the synthesis of novel ternary nanocomposite of Ag@RGO/ZnO, which is introduced as a low cost, efficient and reliable UV absorber. The crystalline, morphological, structural, and optical characteristics of the as-synthesized samples were investigated by various techniques such as XRD, FE-...

Article
We report on the facile synthesis of anatase multi-doped TiO 2 mesocrystals with highly energetic {001} facets and their outstanding photocatalytic activity. The structural and compositional properties were investigated via different techniques such as XRD, XPS, Raman photoluminescence, and electron paramagnetic resonance, which confirmed the fabri...

A popular non-toxic surfactant, Tween 80 (T80), is widely used in foods, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. This eco-friendly surfactant should be promising to be utilized as a non-ionic template in the preparation of TiO2 nanoparticles. Moreover, few studies deal with Tween 80 as a template in the synthesis of various nanoparticles. Different concent...

Bismuth hydroxide chromate (Bi(OH)CrO4) is a narrow bandgap energy semiconductor material that should be of great importance to many applications. Herein, we report a facile, room temperature one-pot method to synthesize Bi(OH)CrO4. The as-prepared nanoparticles were characterized by SEM, XRD, XPS, DRS and Raman spectroscopy. The results revealed t...

Nanocomposite modifiers reinforce the whole characteristics of epoxy coatings for different steel surface applications. To support this concept, sol-gel synthesized TiO2 nanoparticles (TNPs) were mixed with nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPhE) to form nonylphenol ethoxylate/TiO2 nanocomposite (NPhE/TNC) as a modifier for epoxy coating applied on the C-ste...

This study throws light on utilization of visible light in removal dyes from wastewater using commercial PbCrO4/TiO2(P-25) composite which was prepared by grinding TiO2(P-25) with PbCrO4 to decrease the adhesion properties of PbCrO4. As-prepared catalyst was characterized by DRS, XRD and N2 adsorption–desorption. The morphology was examined by SEM....
