Seminar “Graphene-Based NiCr Layered Double Hydroxide for Photo-assisted Sonocatalytic Decomposition of Organic Pollutants”
Recently, water paucity has become a main concern worldwide owing to urbanization and population growth. To prevail on this issue, water demand for some applications can be provided through suitable treatment methods. The advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) such as photocatalysis, sonocatalysis, Fenton, and so on are well known as notable and efficient ways for the degradation of refractory organic pollutants including pesticides, pharmaceuticals, etc.2 Moreover, by the combination of AOP processes, the degradation efficiency improved and the treatment cost decremented. Hence, sonophotocatalysis has got remarkable attention for the degradation of organic contaminants. The semiconducting feature of some layered double hydroxides (LDHs) makes them proper catalysts to be used in AOPs.3,4 Also, the chemical stability, electrical conductivity, and mechanical strength of graphene-based materials make them a promising candidate for hybridizing with LDHs to produce nanocomposites.
