Synthesis and Performance of Porous TiO2
A composite photo-catalyst of nano-TiO2 (TIO) grafted in the pores of expanded graphite (EG) was prepared by a process that included microwave irradiation method and hydrolysis method directly. Fourier transformation infrared spectroscope (FT-IR), Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) were used to characterize the structure and the chemical structure of the photo-catalyst. The results indicate that expanded graphite had a unique net-like pores structure and nano TiO2 was loaded on EG to form EG/ TiO2 (EGTIO) composite photo-catalyst.
