Reactive Photo-Fenton Ceramic Membranes: Synthesis, Characterization and Antifouling Performance

To develop reactive and antifouling membrane filtration systems, a photo-Fenton ceramic membrane was developed by Zhang’s group on a zirconia/titania alumina membrane via a cross-linking method. Photo-Fenton reactions are triggered with addition of H2O2 under UV irradiation to improve the foulant degradation on membrane surface while filtration. This study embarks on a novel antifouling membrane filtration process via incorporation of photo-Fenton reactions. The findings are also important for diverse applications of surface fouling mitigation and rationale design of fouling resistant surfaces or materials through photo-Fenton or other catalytic reactions.
