Zinc oxide-based photocatalyst on woven fiberglass support for destruction of volatile organic compounds in air

Abstract

Method for production of photocatalysts based on zinc oxide deposited to glass fibrous woven material is discussed. The process of destruction of volatile organic compounds acetone in gaseous phase with application of the developed photocatalytic material was investigated.
