Our group member Changyan Zhou successuflly defended her PhD dissertation entitled: “Zeolite Catalysts for Water Treatment: Catalytic Wet Peroxide
Oxidation of Phenol”. Well done Dr. Zhou!
The discharge of wastewater into the environment without adequate treatment aggravates
water shortage worldwide, which prompts the development of efficient wastewater treatment technology as an active area of research in recent years. The catalytic wet peroxide oxidation based on Fenton and Fenton-like reactions, as one of the most promising techniques, was applied in the decomposition of the aromatic pollutants in water by using phenol as representative compound in this research.
Microporous metal oxides with an additional metal within the framework were developed for their potential to create confined metal active sites for large scale water purification processes.
