Data on Phenothiazines Described by Researchers at Beihang University

June 27, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Investigators publish new report on Phenothiazines. According to news reporting from Beijing, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A photoanode structure for dye- sensitized solar cells has been applied into the photocatalytic/electrochemical cooperative degradation of methylene blue solutions."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Beihang University, "The low eutectic point of titanium dioxide (TiO2) with a fluorine-doped tin dioxide (FTO) conductive layer results in a high reactivity of TiO2 for the photocatalytic process as well as a good electron transfer for the electrochemical process. The porous TiO2 layer maintains a large surface area for the degradations."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Through the combinational process, the degradation velocity was improved by similar to 36 %, compared to a pure photocatalytic process."
