Original Abstract

The research is focused on removing novel persistent organic micropollutants, namely endocrine disruptors, from water via new technological concept based on smart combination of nanostructured TiO2 layer and silver nanoparticles. The highly effective TiO2/Ag NPs photocatalytic system active in visible range was created via anodization of Ti and UV-assisted immobilization of Ag NPs. Its efficiency was evaluated on complete demineralization of very stable and poorly degradable EE2 hormone in water. The characteristics of TiO2/Ag NPs system were studied via scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The degradation rate of EE2 and the formation of intermediates were analysed by high performance liquid chromatography.
