    In this work, a novel photoactive cellulose-based hydrogel was prepared by simultaneous AgCl formation and entrapment inside Al (III) and Fe (III) cross-linked carboxymethyl cellulose beads. Physio-chemical and optical properties of the synthesized composites were well characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) analysis, elemental mapping, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, photoluminescence (PL), and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS). The photocatalytic activity of hydrogels was evaluated by the degradation of rhodamine B (RhB), as a model environmental pollutant. A comparative study showed that... 

    Hexagonal core–shell SiO2[–MOYI]Cl–]Ag nanoframeworks for efficient photodegradation of the environmental pollutants and pathogenic bacteria

    Hexagonal core–shell SiO2[–MOYI]Cl–]Ag nanoframeworks were synthesized via surface modification of hexagonal silica nanoparticles prepared from perlite (EP) as a cheap and abundant raw material. The prepared samples were well characterized by X-ray diffraction powder (XRD), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) specific surface area analysis, fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The XRD patterns confirmed that Ag and AgCl crystalline phases were successfully loaded on the surface. The TEM images were also implied that the...

    In this work, a facile ionic liquid-mediated method was utilized to fabricate an efficient photocatalyst for environmental remediation. The eco-friendly aspect of the treatment was explored through an in-vivo toxicity bioassay. ZnO particles, prepared by a combined solid state-pyrolysis method, were coated by 1-methyl-3-(oxiran-2ylmethyl)-1H-imidazolium-3-chloride ([MOYI]Cl) ionic liquid. Then, Ag/AgCl species were grown on the surface to make a heterojunction system leading to efficient charge separation and light absorption extension to the visible domain. The products were characterized by XRD, FTIR, SEM, EDX, DRS, BET, and PL analysis. Photocatalytic performance of the nanostructures was...
