Abstract     [Full Text]
    NanoTiO2 was synthesized by ultrasonication assisted sol-gel process and subjected to iron doping and carbon-iron codoping. The synthesized catalysts were characterized by XRD, HR-SEM, EDX, UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy and BET specific surface area analysis. The average crystallite size of pure TiO2 was in the range of 30 - 33 nm, and that of Fe-TiO2 and C-Fe TiO2 was in the range of 7 - 13 nm respectively. The specific surface area of the iron doped and carbon-iron codoped nanoparticles was around 105 m2/g and 91 m2/g respectively. The coupled semiconductor photo-Fenton
