Apatite was precipitated on the surface of titanium dioxide (TiO2) powder by a biomimetic process. The precipitation was accomplished by immersing TiO2 powder in simulated body fluid (SBF) for 1, 3, 6, 12 and 24 h. Photocatalytic activity of the apatite-precipitated TiO2 (HAp-TiO2) powders was investigated to assess the decomposition of methylene blue (MB) in aqueous solution and the removal of acetaldehyde gas under UV irradiation. Hydroxyapatite precipitation enhanced the photocatalytic activity of the TiO2 powder. The time required for the complete degradation of MB decreased from 3.5 to 2 h with the immersion of TiO2 powders in SBF for 3 h. In terms of acetaldehyde gas decomposition, less than 1 h was sufficient to achieve complete removal for HAp-TiO2 powder but at least 2 h were required for the bare TiO2 powder. HAp-TiO2 powders could therefore be a promising candidate photocatalyst for environmental purification.

Apatite was formed on the surface of titanium dioxide (TiO2) powders by a biomimetic process. The deposition was accomplished by immersing TiO2 powders in simulated body fluid (SBF) for 1, 3, 6, 12, and 24 h. SBF used throughout this study had calcium and phosphate ion concentrations 10 times greater than those of human blood plasma. Photocatalytic activity of the apatite-deposited TiO2 powders was investigated in terms of the decomposition of methylene blue solution under ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. It h...
Preparation of boron-zirconium co-doped photocatalytic titanium dioxide powder
Tokmakçı, Tolga; Öztürk, Abdullah; Jongee, Park; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
A titanium dioxide powder co-doped with boron and zirconium was prepared by mechanical ball milling. Photocatalytic performance of the powder was evaluated by degradation of methylene blue (MB) solution under UV illumination. XRD patterns were refined by Rietveld analysis method to obtain accurate lattice parameters and position of the atoms in the crystal structure of TiO2. XRD analysis indicated that the B and/or Zr doped TiO2 powders composed of anatase and did not exhibit any additional phase. Rietveld ...
Synthesis of Photocatalytic Titanium Dioxide Nanopowders Using Different Acid Catalysers
Mohammed, Ahmed Hafedh Mohammed; Park, Jongee; Öztürk, Abdullah (2018-07-17)
Photocatalytic titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles were synthesized via acid assisted sol-gel process. The effects of different acids namely; acetic acid, hydrochloric acid, and nitric acid on the formation of TiO2 nanoparticles and their photocatalytic properties were investigated. XRD, SEM, and UV-Vis spectrophotometer analyses were performed to examine the physical and chemical characteristics of the nano powders. The results showed that only anatase phase of TiO2nanoparticleswith different crystallite...

Preparation of lead zirconate titanate (Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3) by homogeneous precipitation and calcination
Tas, AC (1999-06-01)
Preparation of phase-pure PZT (Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3) powders was achieved, in the presence of urea (CH4N2O), by homogeneous precipitation. Aqueous solutions of PbCl2, ZrOCl2. 8H(2)O, and TiCl4 were used as the starting materials in the synthesis of phase-pure PZT powders. Phase evolution behavior of precursor powders was studied by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) in air, over the temperature range of 90 degrees to 750 degrees C. The morphology of the formed powders was studied by scanning electron microscopy ...
