The Preparation of TiO2 Film Loaded on Fiberglass Mesh and the Experimental Study on Its Photocatalytic Properties
The TiO2 film loaded on fiberglass mesh was prepared by sol-gel method using butyl titanate as raw material, and the catalyst was characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction(XRD).The catalyst surface of loaded TiO2 can obviously observe solid particles and agglomeration to some extent, the crystalline phase was anatase, and no rutile was observed, the average particle diameter of TiO2 was 40nm,Under the ultraviolet light UV-C irradiation, the photocatalytic oxidation experiments of humic acid solution was conducted. The results showed that the prepared photocatalyst has a high photocatalytic activity, the UV254 degradation rate of humic acid solution in 60min reached 96.9%, but the degradation rate of TOC is only 57.3%, indicating that the organisms in humic acid can not be completely mineralized in photocatalytic oxidation process.
