Tailoring the Photocatalytic Activity of Nanoparticulate Zinc Oxide by Transition Metal Oxide Doping

Dodd, Aaron; McKinley, Allan; Tsuzuki, Takuya; Saunders, Martin


The successful use of nanoparticulate ZnO in applications such as UV-screening agents or photocatalyst for the destruction of chemical waste requires the development of techniques for controlling its photocatalytic activity. In this study, we have investigated transition metal doping as a means of achieving this goal. Powders of ZnO, MnxZn1-xO, and CoxZn1-xO were synthesised by a three-stage process consisting of high-energy mechanical milling, heat treatment, and washing. The photocatalytic...[Show more]
