Investigators from Hanseo University Zero in on Chalcogens (Detection of oxygen species generated by WO3 modification fullerene/TiO2 in the degradation of 1,5-diphenyl carbazide)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Chalcogens. According to news reporting originating from Seosan, South Korea, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "In the present work, powders with different relative mole ratios of WO3-fullerenel/TiO2 were irradiated by visible light and ultrasonic. The composite obtained was characterized by BET surface area measurements, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and UV-vis analysis."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Hanseo University, "A methylene blue (MB) solution under visible light and ultrasonic irradiation was used to determine the catalytic activity. The generation of reactive oxygen species were detected through the oxidation reaction from 1,5-diphenyl carbazide (DPCI) to 1,5-diphenyl carbazone (DPCO)."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Finally, we performed experiments to find the optimum relative mole ratio of fullerene for the degradation of MB."
