Abstract

In the present study, FeO doped TiO2 photo-catalysts were immobilized onto fibrous carbon fiber (ACFs) via a sol gel method followed by hydrothermal process. The catalytic behavior of TiO2/FeO-ACF exhibited the highest photo-degradation rate for phenol as compared with pure TiO2, ACFs and TiO2/FeO under the visible radiation of light. The Fe (III) atom has been substituted by some of the Ti atoms during the sol-gel process at the in the TiO2 lattice causing a change in optical absorption. Furthermore, support for ACF has observed with reduction of photo-genrated holes and electron recombination, promoting the photocatalytic operation of FeO's loaded TiO2. The produced ACF as a sorbent has shown very good performance for removing phenol from industrial aquatic waste. For photo-degradation and for sorption sensitivity by combined process with photo-degradation, the maximum extraction of phenol (100 mg / L) was 89.4 and 127.8 mg / g, respectively, at the value of 4 pH with illumination of solar light within 90 Minutes. The photo-degradation efficiency of phenol was 96.1% and 62.4% and 79.5% respectively was achieved to reduce chemical oxygen (COD) with addition of total organic carbon (TOC) and market demand under visible irradiation of light with TiO2/FeO-ACF, the photo induced hole and electron recombination is possibly restricted and high efficiency in light harvesting due to red shift.
