Title: Photocatalytic degradation of organophosphorous, carbamates and pyridazon on Titania/Zirconia nanocomposites and thin films

As a photocatalyst for organic pollutants, TiO2 suffer from high band gap, low thermal stability and relatively low quantum efficiency. Coupling TiO2 with metals, metal oxides and non-metals has been reported to solve these problems. This study involves preparation of titanium dioxide/metal oxide nanocomposite, powder and thin films for degradation of pesticides
