Development and Characterization of Antibacterial Activated Carbon Composite of Zinc and Oxide for Water Filtration as an Industrial Application
Activated Carbon Use for Water Filtration
A scientific approach has been adopted in this research work to develop an antibacterial composite material by synthesizing the zinc and oxide together along with activated composite of carbon. NH3, H2O2, ZnO, AC and H2O were used in this context. Embedded together to convert the zinc oxide to activated carbon. The 2.5 g of zinc oxide along with 45 mL of ammonia mixed with 4 mL of H2O2. After that 250 g of activated carbon along with precursor solution was soaked for a period of 3 h. Immediately, after soaking the solution was kept for drying at room temperature for a period of 12 h. After drying, the product was sintered in the sintering furnace at a temp: of 248 °K (120 °C) for a soaking period of 2 h. The morphology was analyzed with the help of XRD and SEM. The XRD peaks clearly shows the zinc oxide and activated carbon product and also the SEM micrographs reveal the porous structure of the composite of ZnO activated carbon. It is concluded that the antibacterial activated carbon composite of zinc and oxide was successfully developed and can be used for water filtration.
