AbstractPhotocatalysts based on TiO supported on two different synthetic zeolites (faujasite CBV 760: SiO/AlO = 60 and mordenite CBV 21A, SiO/AlO = 20), containing 10 wt% and 40 wt% TiO loading, have been synthesized using a sol-gel method without any further calcination. The structural, textural and optical properties of the samples have been characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), elemental analysis (ICP-OES), N adsorption-desorption isotherms, aberration corrected Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy with High Angle Annular Dark Field imaging combined with Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (STEM/HAADF/EELS), and UV-Vis Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (UV-Vis DRS). The characterization data confirmed that an amorphous layer containing polycrystalline anatase TiO was formed efficiently on the surface of the zeolites, showing 2-4 nm crystalline domains. The photocatalytic activities of different samples were tested for the photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange, which showed increased adsorption of the dye molecule, and a faster degradation reaction than the calcined counterparts. Interestingly, although the supported TiO catalysts were not calcined, the best catalysts, 10TZY60nc and 40TZY60nc, showed negligible Ti leaching and their reusability was verified for three cycles without noticeable photocatalytic activity decrement.
