Xingfa Li, Dandan Liang, Chaoxu Wang, Yongguo Li, Runbin Duan & Li Yu
A new type of metal-free catalyst was successfully prepared by doping boron (B) in the carbon nanotube. The catalyst had 99.4% removal of phenol in 60 min at pH 7 by activating peroxymonosulfate (PMS). In order to explore the origin of the high catalytic activity, the samples were characterized by Raman and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), and the reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the process of catalytic degradation were investigated. The Raman results showed that...
