- ... BACKGROUND: An efficient material possessing both photocatalytic and antimicrobial properties is necessary to remediate contaminated water resources. In the present study, zinc oxide nanorods (ZnO) have been impregnated on activated carbon fibres (ACF) to develop a heterogeneous photocatalytic system for the degradation of an organophosphorus compound, taking Malathion as a model pollutant, and to ...
