[Abstract]
The emerging nanocarbons such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, and nanodiamonds exhibit great merits for heterogeneous catalysis compared with metal- or metal oxide-based catalysts in aqueous solution without toxic ion-leaching and associated secondary contamination. In this talk, several different nanocarbonswill be demonstrated to be active materials as alternatives to metal-based catalysts in photocatalysis and advanced oxidation processes for wastewater treatment.
