Title of the show/activity: Green chemistry - photocatalytic removal of pollutants
Presented phenomenon/issue: Heterogeneous photocatalysis and action of catalysts
Description of the show/activity: Using the example of removing pollutants from water [colored substances], we show how heterogeneous photocatalysts work. The presented catalyst will be one of the currently tested at the IPC PAS, and the installation itself is a real line in our laboratory. We show/discuss the dependence of the cleaning installation efficiency on various factors, such as light intensity, pollution concentration, or light wavelength.
