Method of preparing crystalline TiO2 nanoparticles on the surface of carbonaceous material derived from lignocellulosic biomass

  • Summary:

    The invention relates to a low temperature method for the production of crystalline TiO2 nanoparticles on a surface of carbonaceous material derived from lignocellulosic biomass by means of an ultrasonic-assisted sol-gel method together with the addition of an acid from the hydroxy carboxylic acid group.

  • Advantages / Innovative aspects:
    • simplicity of method and low cost of equipment,
    • great ability to modify some parameters (e.g. ultrasound intensity),
    • the ability to obtain crystalline TiO2 particles of reproducible size,
    • synthesis in a relatively short time and does not require the use of high temperature associated with material calcination
  • Keywords:
    Sol-Gel, Ultrasound, Photocatalysis, Carbon Materials, Lignocellulosic Biomass, Organic Synthesis, Air and Water Purification.
