New bio-based hybrid composites with CeO2 NPs: a step towards more sustainable and competitive photocatalytic materials
Status proiect: Finalizat
Despre Obiective Rezultate Diseminare Echipa Contact

The scientific objectives of the project are:

O1. Synthesis of hybrid composite materials by immobilizing CeO2 NPs (commercial, synthesized in our laboratory or organically modified) within native cellulose (avicel, fibers, cotton linters, cellulose acetate), oxidized cellulose or polymer blends of native/oxidized cellulose with PVA.

O2. Assessment of the hybrid material with the best catalytic performance – correlations between the photocatalytic activity under UV irradiation in degradation of organic pollutants (decomposition degree, kinetic studies) and reusability tests (integrity of the material, evaluation of CeO2 NPs leakage).

O3. Development of hybrid composites with shifted activity to visible light domain starting from the previously designed photocatalysts with the best properties in which plasmonic metal nanostructures (Au, Ag, Pd) will be generated.
