Chinese scientists develop new material for water purification
March 05, 2019

Chinese scientists have developed a new material that can use light to efficiently and safely purify water.  Photocatalytic methods offer environmentally safe water purification, but the catalysts required in the process are usually metal-based, which can cause second pollution. 

Scientists from the Institute of Process engineering under the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Yangzhou University have designed an efficient metal-free catalyst for photocatalytic water purification. (Xinhua)
