REMOVAL OF NORFLOXACIN BY TiO2-SBA-15 PHOTOCATALYST
Keywords:Norfloxacin, SBA-15, titanium dioxide, photocatalysis, mesoporous materials
Ordered SBA-15 mesoporous silica support was synthesized by a sol-gel method using triblock copolymer Pluronic P123 and immobilized with different amounts of photocatalyst TiO2. The synthesized composites were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and N2 adsorption-desorption isotherms. The synthesized materials possessed specific surface areas SBET of 768 m2/g, 544 m2/g, 421 m2/g and 333 m2/g at the TiO2:SiO2 ratio of 0, 0.25, 1.0 and 5.0, respectively. The adsorption capacities and photocatalytic activities under UV light irradiation of these materials were evaluated for Norfloxacin degradation. Experimental results indicate that the highest activity was observed on the sample with TiO2:SiO2 ratio of 1.
