New paper published
The SupraMMat group published a new scientific paper on coordination polymer-derived CuO catalysts for oxidative degradation of methylene blue in the Materials Chemistry and Physics, an Elsevier journal.
Coordination polymers (CP) were prepared via an electrochemical method and used as precursors for CuO by calcination in air at 650 °C. The CP-derived CuO was tested in the catalytic degradation of the methylene blue in the presence of H2O2 showing discoloration efficiency about 92% at 308 K, and 100% at 331 K after 120 and 30 min, respectively with excellent recyclability.
