Summary of "Catalytic activity of CuMnFeO/multi-walled carbon nanotubes (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.1) nanocomposites for p-nitrophenol degradation in catalyst/HO system."

Heterogeneous Fenton oxidation has become a very important wastewater-treatment method and its catalyst is crucial for good treatment effect. In order to improve the catalytic properties, the Cu and Mn elements were doped for CuMnFeO/multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CuMnFeO/MWCNTs) nanocomposites (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.1) by co-precipitation method. The structure, morphology and surface properties of the nanocomposites were characterized by X-ray powder diffractometer (XRD), N-physisorption analysis, transmission electron microscope (TEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The CuMnFeO/MWCNTs nanocomposites were used as heterogeneous Fenton catalysts for p-nitrophenol (p-NP) degradation. The catalytic performances of the Cu and/or Mn doped nanocomposites have remarkable improvement compared with FeO/MWCNTs nanocomposite, especially for both Cu and Mn doped catalyst. For CuMnFeO/MWCNTs nanocomposites, the catalytic performance increases with increasing x value and reaches a maximum at 0.075 of x value. At optimal condition, the p-NP conversion rate reaches 96.4% in 10 min for CuMnFeO/MWCNTs nanocomposite. However, the mentioned rate for FeO/MWCNTs catalyst is only 14.5%. The chemical oxygen demand (COD) removal rates in 120 min for CuMnFeO/MWCNTs and FeO/MWCNTs catalysts are 82.7% and 67.3%, respectively. Furthermore, the p-NP conversion and COD removal rates of CuMnFeO/MWCNTs nanocomposite still keep at 94.4% and 70.3% after five-time reuse, respectively. This catalyst shows good reusability for p-NP degradation and is very easy to recover from the treated water.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nanometer-sized tubes composed of various substances including carbon (CARBON NANOTUBES), boron nitride, or nickel vanadate.

Nanometer-sized tubes composed mainly of CARBON. Such nanotubes are used as probes for high-resolution structural and chemical imaging of biomolecules with ATOMIC FORCE MICROSCOPY.

Materials which have structured components with at least one dimension in the range of 1 to 100 nanometers. These include NANOCOMPOSITES; NANOPARTICLES; NANOTUBES; and NANOWIRES.

A dark powdery deposit of unburned fuel residues, composed mainly of amorphous CARBON and some HYDROCARBONS, that accumulates in chimneys, automobile mufflers and other surfaces exposed to smoke. It is the product of incomplete combustion of carbon-rich organic fuels in low oxygen conditions. It is sometimes called lampblack or carbon black and is used in INK, in rubber tires, and to prepare CARBON NANOTUBES.

NANOTUBES formed from cyclic peptides (PEPTIDES, CYCLIC). Alternating D and L linkages create planar rings that self assemble by stacking into nanotubes. They can form pores through CELL MEMBRANE causing damage to cells.
