TiO2 Nanotube Deposited in the Pores of Expanded Graphite by Microwave Irradiation
We prepared a composite photocatalyst of Stick TiO2 nanorod loaded on expanded graphite(EG).The growth of TiO2 in the pores of EG by sol–gel method under normal temperature and pressure was investigated. Results sugest that pores of the EG which can load catalyst particles (TiO2 nanotube) is the physical base. Stick TiO2 nanorod can be well loaded on EG to form EG/TiO2 composite photocatalyst. So a unique process trying to load TiO2 photocatalyst on EG to EG/TiO2 composite photocatalyst was developed by us.
