Preparation and Photocatalytic Performance of TiO2 Immobilized on Fiberglass Cloth

Deqiang Chen and Yiqun Chen
Abstract—In this study, the TiO2 immobilized on fiberglass cloth was prepared to improve the photocatalytic activity of TiO2 and overcome the difficulty of reuse through painting followed by sol-gel process. The morphology and microstructure of TiO2 loaded on FGC were characterized via XRD and SEM, respectively. The result revealed that 1) the crystalline structure of immobilized TiO2 was nearly unchanged compared with pure P25 nanoparticles. 2) The TiO2 loaded on FGC had larger specific surface area than that of P25. 3) The TiO2/FGC system displayed remarkable photocatalytic activity on decomposition of MC-LR.

Index Terms—TiO2, fiberglass cloth, MC-LR, photocatalytic performance.
