Magnetic core–shell CuFe2O4@C3N4 hybrids for visible light photocatalysis of Orange II
MetadataShow full item record
Novel CuFe2O4@C3N4 core–shell photocatalysts were fabricated through a self-assembly method and characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and Uv–vis diffuse reflection spectroscopy. The photocatalytic performances of the CuFe2O4@C3N4 catalysts were evaluated in photo Fenton-like discoloration of Orange II dye using H2O2 as an oxidant under visible-light irradiation (λ > 420 nm). It was found the CuFe2O4@C3N4 hybrid (mass ratio of CuFe2O4/g-C3N4 at 2:1) exhibits a superior activity as compared with single component of CuFe2O4 or g-C3N4 and the mixture of g-C3N4 and CuFe2O4, due to the elevation of the separation efficiency of photoinduced electron–hole pairs, resulted from the heterojunction between the interfaces of g-C3N4 and CuFe2O4. The quenching tests of different scavengers displayed that View the MathML sourceO2•−, radical dotOH and h+ are responsible for the Orange II decolorization. In addition, the effects of initial concentration of the dye contaminant (0.014–0.140 mM), different anions (Cl−, View the MathML sourceSO42−, View the MathML sourceNO3−, CH3COO− and View the MathML sourceHCO3−) and temperature (15–65 °C) in photoreaction were also investigated. The CuFe2O4@C3N4 sample exhibited stable performance without obvious loss of catalytic activity after five successive runs, showing a promising application for the photo-oxidative degradation of environmental contaminants.

Allocate carbon for a reason: Priorities are reflected in the 13C/12C ratios of plant lipids synthesized via three independent biosynthetic pathwaysZhou, Youping; Stuart-Williams, H.; Grice, Kliti; Kayler, Z.; Zavadlav, S.; Vogts, A.; Rommerskirchen, F.; Farquhar, G.; Gessler, A. (2015)It has long been theorized that carbon allocation, in addition to the carbon source and to kinetic isotopic effects associated with a particular lipid biosynthetic pathway, plays an important role in shaping the carbon ...

Structural and temporal evolution of a reactivated brittle-ductile fault - Part II: Timing of fault initiation and reactivation by K-Ar dating of synkinematic illite/muscoviteTorgersen, E.; Viola, G.; Zwingmann, Horst; Harris, C. (2014)Present-day exposures of ancient faults represent only the end result of the faults' often protracted and heterogeneous histories. Here we apply K–Ar dating of synkinematic illite/muscovite to constrain the timing of the ...
