Thesis research topic: Develop the hollow fiber membrane for water purification.
According to data, more than 100,000 different dyes are produced in 700,000 tonnes and about 15% of these dyes are directly released into the effluent. These dyes are recalcitrant in nature and very tough to degrade under natural conditions. Therefore, in my Ph.D. work, I am trying to develop a cost-effective hollow fiber membrane that can successfully degrade the dye and purify the water. My aim is to synthesize a hollow fiber membrane coated with metal oxide and evaluate the photocatalytic activity of the modified hollow fiber membrane.
Keywords: hollow fiber membranes, dyes, photocatalytic degradation, metal oxides, water purification
