Abstract

original image

Cleaning earth by using a mesoporous C-TiO2 catalyst and sunshine! The mesoporous carbon-titania composite is proved to show excellent adsorption–catalysis cycles in the elimination of azo dyes. The mesostructure, which includes mesopores, carbon pore walls and carbon doping anatase nanoparticles (formed by interaction between carbon and titania and immobilized inside framework), is responsible for the improved photocatalytic performance and reusability as described in the Full Paper by Y. Wan et al. on page 566 ff.
