Title : TELLURIUM (Te-TiO2/Ti) DOPPED TiO2/Ti COMPOSITE SYNTHESIS FOR DEGRADATION OF REACTIVE BLUE 160 BY PHOTOELECTROCATALYSIS

Abstract :

TiO2/Ti electrode preparation has been carried out by anodizing, sol-gel and dip coating methods while tellurium coating has been carried out using the dip coating method to obtain Te-TiO2 / Ti electrodes. Photo current response of TiO2 / Ti and Te-TiO2 / Ti tested on photoelectrocatalyst shows that TiO2 / Ti electrodes are active in UV light and Te-TiO2 / Ti is active in visible light. The results of characterization using XRD showed anatase crystals, SEM showed nano tube crystals against Te-TiO2 / Ti electrodes, EDX confirmed Te on Te-TiO2 / Ti electrodes, with a percentage of 2.48%. Measurement of UV-Vis Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS UV-Vis) was done to determine the band gap energy of the prepared TiO2/ Ti and Te-TiO2 / Ti electrodes, LSV shows that the TiO2 / Ti electrode is active in UV irradiation and the Te-TiO2 / Ti electrode is active in Visible light. The results of the UV-Vis spectrophotometer analysis that degraded the reactive blue 160 compound by photolectrocatalyst showed that the TiO2 / Ti electrode was active with UV light irradiation with a degradation rate constant of 0.0289 minutes-1 and active Te-TiO2 / Ti with visible irradiation with a degradation rate constant of 0.0653 min
