Photocatalytic oxidation of ethanol and isopropanol vapors on cadmium sulfide

Publication year: 2012 Source: Journal of Catalysis, Available online 21 January 2012 Maxim A. Nasalevich, Ekaterina A. Kozlova, Tatyana P. Lyubina, Alexander V. Vorontsov CdS-based catalysts preparation has been investigated, and the obtained photocatalysts were characterized and tested in photocatalytic oxidation of ethanol and isopropanol vapors under visible light irradiation (λ >  420 nm) with oxygen of air. The catalysts were prepared with a two-step method: (1) reaction between CdCl2and NaOH and (2) exchange of hydroxide ions of Cd(OH)2intermediate with Sto form CdS. Influence of the reagents addition rate, stirring rate, temperature of the reaction mixture and the reagents’ ratio on the oxidation rate of alcohols on solids was investigated.
