Photocatalytic Reduction of Graphene Oxide on Tungsten Oxide Thin Film

M. Choobtashani, O. Akhavan* Department of physics, Sharif University of technology, Tehran, 111559161, Iran *oakhavan@sharif.edu

WO3 thin films were deposited by thermal evaporation on glass substrates and then all samples were annealed at 4000C in air. Graphene oxide (GO) platelets synthesized by using a chemical exfoliation method were drop casted on these WO3 thin films. Then prepared samples undergo UV irradiation for 24 h. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) analysis was employed to characterize GO nanosheets. By using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis, photocatalytic reduction of the GO platelets was observed. This reduction was done without needing any aqueous ambient in a safe and room temperature procedure. Keywords: Graphene; WO3; Photocatalyst APP 152


Nano-sized -alumina catalyst was prepared by precipitation/digestion method in which aqueous solution of aluminium nitrate nonahydrate and ammonium carbonate were added simultaneously drop by drop to wellstirred deionized water at 60 C in the pH range of 7.0-8.0. After aging at the same temperature for 24 h, the precipitate was washed with water and then by ethanol and acetone. The aged precipitate was dried at room temperature. Finally, the calcination of as-dried precipitate at 580 C for 5 h in air produced porous -Al2O3 powder particles. The synthesized catalyst was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorptiondesorption and NH3-TPD techniques. Dehydration of methanol to dimethyl ether (DME) on the synthesized acidic catalyst was studied in the fixed bed adiabatic reactor at different operating temperatures.

Silver iodide nanoparticles has been used as novel, mild and environmentally friendly catalyst for an efficient one-pot synthesis of biologically active aryl-14H-dibenzo[a.j]xanthenes derivatives under solvent free conditions. This method provides a noble and improved method for the synthesis of xanthenes derivatives in terms of excellent yields, short reaction times and little catalyst loading.

Regular alumina in all phases is an industrially well-understood and highly demanded chemical for which all porasimetric properties are known. Recently nanotechnology has been combined with this area. Nano-structured alumina with superior properties in a lot of categories could become an alternative for regular phases of this material. In this research the nano-structured alumina has been prepared utilizing aluminium chloride. It is then characterized to determine its porasimetric properties. A sample of cobalt based catalyst with this material prepared and compared with regular supported catalysts. Results show that the nano-structured alumina has higher surface area but it is more sensitive toward sintering through calcinations. Although pore volume of the fresh and the calcinated nano-structured alumina are lower than that of the regular alumina, the behaviour of the final catalyst is not poor. For instance, the nano-structured supported catalyst is much more wax selective and more resistive towards deactivation. The nano-structured alumina was indeed superior to regular gamma alumina as a catalyst support for the cobalt based Fischer Tropsch catalysts.

A novel silver (Ag) nanocomposite electrode was proposed for the determination of semicarbazide. The fabricated electrode was made from metal nanostructures and ionic liquids (ILs). The combined advantage of unique properties of nanomaterials and ILs in the design of this Ag nanocomposite results in electrodes with interesting advantages compared to the conventional Ag disk electrode. This Ag paste nanocomposite electrode was employed as an efficient electrocatalyst for semicarbazide oxidation in alkaline media. The results confirm that this nanocomposite electrode has high sensitivity, low detection limit, wide linear range, good long-term stability and reproducibility for determination of semicarbazide.
