Mishra, Monali (2014) Design of Supported Nanoparticles in Ionic Liquid Medium and Its Photocatalytic Applications. MSc thesis.
In this project, monometallic Ag nanoparticle doped titania was synthesized via nanoparticle encapsulation method using [BMIM]PF6ionic liquid. The material was thoroughly characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscope (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) Spectroscopy and UV-Vis spectroscopy. Efficiency of the catalyst was evaluated on photodegradation of methylene blue (MB) dye under visible light irradiation. Results shows that Ag-doped titania in ionic liquid exhibited much better photodegradation (96%) as compared to Ag-doped titania in methanol medium (65%) in 210 min.
