Advances in Photocatalytic Disinfection by Taicheng An, Huijun Zhao, Po Keung Wong

By Taicheng An, Huijun Zhao, Po Keung Wong

This booklet provides the most recent effects relating to photocatalytic inactivation/killing of microorganisms, that is a promising substitute disinfection process that produces much less or maybe no disinfection byproduct. The e-book is split into thirteen chapters, which introduce readers to the newest advancements within the photocatalytic disinfection of microorganisms, research crucial photocatalytic (PC) and photoelectrocatalytic (PEC) disinfection stories, and forecast and make thoughts for the extra improvement of workstation and PEC disinfection. Bringing jointly contributions via numerous best examine teams world wide, it deals a precious source for researchers and the alike, in addition to the final public.

2 Natural Sphalerite (ZnS) Natural sphalerite occurs most commonly in the ocean bottom and thermal hydro vent, mainly as middle-high temperature carbonate-hosted lead-zinc deposits and hydrothermal-type deposits. Therefore, sphalerite is often found to be associated with galena (PbS). 3 shows four typical natural sphalerite deposits in China. Iron and zinc are common in these deposits as major elements. But the type and content of the trace elements are quite different, leading to the differences in crystal chemistry, electronic structure, and surface chemistry among different sphalerite samples.

These results may indicate that most of these minerals could be excited by the visible light and photocatalytically generate reactive species. The photocatalysis function in minerals can play a unique role in self-cleaning of the environment on the Earth’s surface. Actually, only a limited number of minerals belong to intrinsic semiconductor, such as FeAsS, β-MnO2, etc. [34, 35]. Most minerals are non-intrinsic semiconductors, whose electrons or holes are generated by impurity levels and formed by the isomorphism and point defects in minerals [34, 35].
