Abstract

A massive amount of research has been done over the last three decades to develop photoactive materials, which could be suitable for real-world use in water remediation sector. Water-floating photocatalysts could be one of the best options due to their characteristics in terms of efficiency and reasonability including a high oxygenation of the photocatalyst surface, a fully sunlight irradiation, easy recovery and reuse. In the present study, aerogel water-floating based materials were fabricated using poly(vinyl alcohol) and polyvinylidene fluoride as a polymer platform, and loaded with different semiconductors such as g-C3N4, MoO3, Bi2O3, Fe2O3 or WO3. The photocatalytic efficiencies of aerogel floating materials and the suspension of above-mentioned semiconductors were compared evaluating the photoreduction of Cr(VI) under visible light (λ > 420 nm). The results showed that Fe2O3 suspension was the most efficient but the slowest in floating system. On the contrary, g-C3N4 exhibited a good performance in suspension system, and on top of that it was very effective in floating system, wherein it ensures a total reduction of 10 ppm-Cr(VI) to Cr(III) within 20 min.
