Role of Microwave on Structural, Morphological, Optical and Photocatalytic Properties of TiO2 Nanoparticles
Authors : R. Senthilkumar,B. Gnanavel,


A simple, rapid, and one step microwave assisted synthesis of high-performance TiO2 nanoparticles within 15 min without using any post annealing treatment. The microwave irradiation power is varied from 180-900 W. The effect of microwave power on the structural, surface morphology, optical and photocatalytic activity has been systematically investigated. Powder XRD results suggest that TiO2... Read More

Geophysical Monitoring at Laboratory Scale of Aerobic Degradation of Diesel Oil
Authors : A. Vergnano,A. Godio,F. Bosco,C. Raffa,B. Ruffino,F. Chiampo,


The study is aimed to monitor bioremediation of hydrocarbon-polluted soils by measuring geophysical electromagnetic parameters. A previous study at lab scale showed that biostimulated indigenous microorganisms can remove diesel oil from soil successfully. Herein, we focused on the result of a laboratory test using Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) probes to measure electrical conductivity and... Read More
