“Sonication-Induced Pathways in the Synthesis of Light-Active Catalysts for Photocatalytic Oxidation of Organic Contaminants” by J.C. Colmenares
The sounds of catalysis: Unconventional and soft techniques offer enormous possibilities for the synthesis of a broad spectrum of nanostructured materials, among them photocatalysts. Ultrasound creates cavities in liquids that give rise to unusual reaction conditions. These conditions allow for reactions that would otherwise have to occur at generally harsher conditions. A review of methodologies is provided.
Keywords: green chemistry; photocatalysis; synthesis methods; titania; ultrasound
