Study on Photocatalytic Degradation of Electroless Ni-P-TiO2 Composite Coating
TiO2 shows a high efficiency in Photocatalysis, however, the recycling of TiO2 is difficult, composite coating is prepared by simultaneous elecroless deposition of NiP and TiO2 on substrates, surface topography and hardness of composite coating are investigated by metalloscope, SEM, EDS and Vickers microhardness; The relation between absorbence of methyl orange and time is researched by 723# spectrophotometer. The results show when TiO2 content in bath is 4g/L, plating speed is most fast and amount to 12.2μm/h, the photocatalytic effect is best. by comparing the microhardness of heat-treated compound coating and the Ni-P alloy coating, the maximum microhardness of the former appears in 500°C and achieves HV1180, and the latter appears in 400 °C and achieves HV950.
