Photocatalytic Degradation of Dyes: Current Trends and Future Perspectives covers in detail current trends and future aspects on photocatalytic degradation of organic dyes using novel photocatalytic techniques such as metallic nanoparticles, heterogeneous and hybrid systems using visible light irradiation. It highlights the most recent scientific and technological achievements and importance of degradation of dyes in the textile effluent by simple environmental friendly approaches using eco-friendly catalysts. It is of assistance to everyone interested in bioremediation of effluents: professionals, consulting engineers, academicians, and research scholars as well.

Key Features

  • Describes the basic photocatalytic techniques and their application in wastewater treatment
  • Covers the key reactive species accounting for the photodegradation of different dyes, providing helpful guidelines that could be applied to foster the development of efficient photodegradation systems
  • Includes Description of a wide variety of catalysts and their application in degradation of dyes in the effluent of variable matrices (such as textile effluent, pharmaceutical industry effluent, food industry effluent)
  • Presents the application of doped semiconductors in the degradation of dyes, hybrid systems and their importance in the dye degradation
  • Describes the biological synthesis of metallic nanostructures and their use in dye degradation using visible range of light irradiation
  • Discusses the mechanistic aspect of the dye degradation using photo catalysts
