The article from Camilo Sanchez (ESR8) and co-authors with the title “Microwave-Assisted Synthesis of N/TiO2 Nanoparticles for Photocatalysis under Different Irradiation Spectra” was published in Nanomaterials on 26th of April 2022.

The article describes the synthesis of nitrogen-doped TiO2 by an environmentally friendly and cost-effective microwave-assisted method and its application to remove the ciprofloxacin antibiotic from aqueous media using different irradiation sources. The applied synthesis method showed that materials could be obtained at low temperatures and short reaction times without further thermal treatment. The temperature was the most critical parameter for the morphological properties, while the nitrogen content determined the photocatalytic performance. The nitrogen-doped nanocomposites removed more than 95% of ciprofloxacin under UVA and Solar irradiation.
