Summary of "Surface plasma Ag-decorated single-crystalline TiO(B) nanorod/defect-rich g-CN nanosheet ternary superstructure 3D heterojunctions as enhanced visible-light-driven photocatalyst."

Ag-TiO(B)/g-CN ternary heterojunctions photocatalysts are fabricated by hydrothermal-calcination, photo-deposition procedure, and followed by in-situ solid-state chemical reduction procedure. As-obtained photocatalysts are consisted with heterojunctions between 2D g-CN sheets and 1D TiO(B) single-crystalline nanorods. The band gap of Ag-TiO(B)/g-CN ternary heterojunctions photocatalysts is reduced to ∼2.23 eV due to plasma Ag and surface engineering. Under visible light irradiation, it has an optimal photocatalytic property for the reduction of Cr (95%) and degradation of NH (93%). The apparent reaction rate constants (k) of ternary heterojunctions photocatalysts for NH and Cr are 25 and 12 folds higher than that of original TiO(B). Furthermore, Ag-TiO(B)/g-CN also has excellent hydrogen production efficiency, which is up to 410 µmol h g. This enhancement can be attributed to the unique heterojunction formed by 1D single-crystalline TiO(B) nanorods and 2D g-CN sheets, surface plasma resonance effect of plasma Ag nanoparticle, and surface engineering. A possible photocatalytic mechanism is also proposed by analysizing the XPS valence-band spectra and the Mott-Schottky.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Major structural proteins of triacylglycerol-rich LIPOPROTEINS. There are two forms, apolipoprotein B-100 and apolipoprotein B-48, both derived from a single gene. ApoB-100 expressed in the liver is found in low-density lipoproteins (LIPOPROTEINS, LDL; LIPOPROTEINS, VLDL). ApoB-48 expressed in the intestine is found in CHYLOMICRONS. They are important in the biosynthesis, transport, and metabolism of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins. Plasma Apo-B levels are high in atherosclerotic patients but non-detectable in ABETALIPOPROTEINEMIA.

The carbohydrate-rich zone on the cell surface. This zone can be visualized by a variety of stains as well as by its affinity for lectins. Although most of the carbohydrate is attached to intrinsic plasma membrane molecules, the glycocalyx usually also contains both glycoproteins and proteoglycans that have been secreted into the extracellular space and then adsorbed onto the cell surface. (Alberts et al., Molecular Biology of the Cell, 3d ed, p502)

Ionized gases, consisting of free electrons and ionized atoms or molecules which collectively behave differently than gas, solid, or liquid. Plasma gases are used in biomedical fields in surface modification; biological decontamination; dentistry (e.g., PLASMA ARC DENTAL CURING LIGHTS); and in other treatments (e.g., ARGON PLASMA COAGULATION).

A fibrin matrix derived from platelet-rich plasma that contains high concentration of BLOOD PLATELETS; LEUKOCYTES; CYTOKINES; and GROWTH FACTORS. It is used in a variety of clinical and TISSUE ENGINEERING applications.

A preparation consisting of PLATELETS concentrated in a limited volume of PLASMA. This is used in various surgical tissue regeneration procedures where the GROWTH FACTORS in the platelets enhance wound healing and regeneration.
