Fourth generation photocatalysts: nano-engineered composites for water decontamination in low-cost paintable photoreactors
7E13066 (MSM/7E), Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic (associated contractor - project leader is affiliated with another institution)
Primary aim is development of a novel generation of low-cost nano-engineered photocatalysts for sunlight-driven water depollution and their application in paintable photoreactors envisaged particularly as low-cost devices for detoxification of water from highly toxic persistent organic pollutants which represent a serious health issue in many remote rural areas of Vietnam and other countries.
Key words: photocatalysis; water remediation; nano-engineering; co-catalysts; atomic layer deposition; paintable photoreactor; persistent organic pollutants; herbicides; Vietnam
