Abstract

This study investigates the possible contribution to sustainable development by utilizing agriculture waste materials to prepare a substrate for photo-catalysis application. The photocatalytic performance of impregnated TiO2 on acid and base- treated coconut coir (CC) and their pyrolysed form have been studied. The photocatalytic performance of impregnated TiO2 on acid treated CC improved compared to bare TiO2. However, the pyrolysed samples showed higher thermal stability and porosity compared to only treated CC, their catalytic performance was decreased. It seems that impregnated TiO2 undergo interaction with treated CC during pyrolysis. More investigations to reveal exact reason of this behavior is in progress.
