Synthesis of anodic photocatalysts and their potential application in the degradation of histamine from wastewater from fish processors

Project: Research

Project Details


There are multiple sources of contamination of persistent nitrogen-containing organic compounds in aqueous media, which is harmful to living beings in general. This requires efficient and low-cost treatments, with the aim of reducing the concentration of contaminants. The present investigation aims to synthesize nanostructured films of semiconductors TiO2, WO3 and Bi2O3 on conductive glass FTO, by electrodeposition techniques and dip dip. It is expected to achieve oxidative degradation of histamine present in wastewater from fish processors. The degradation monitoring will be studied by UV-visible spectroscopy and HPLC liquid chromatography to identify the intermediates that could form or remain without degrading.
