All relevant results will be published in international journals and presented at national and international conferences. In addition, if these materials perform well, the patentability of any new results will be considered before any public disclosure.
This project aims to synthesize a new type of Fenton catalysts and investigate the effect of different synthesis parameters on their final structures and photocatalytic performances. Zero-valent iron is mainly used for Fenton reactions due to its low cost and high activity. However, zero-valent iron produces slag in the treated water, requiring additional steps to clean the water after treatment. Therefore, using Prussian blue analogs as photocatalyst is desirable to carry out charge exchange in the crystals themselves, reducing the leaching of iron and thus preventing slag (iron hydroxides) formation.
