SYNTHESIS OF NOVEL GROUP 3 AND LANTHANIDES COMPLEXES CONTAINING THE FERROCENYL MOIETY
Jacopo Segato, 2016, master's thesis

Abstract: The thesis describes the synthesis of novel yttrium(III), europium(III) and ytterbium(III) complexes with polydentate ligands containing the ferrocenyl moiety. In particular, a chelating beta-diketonate ligand having formula [FcCOCHCOCH3]- has been used for the preparation of homo- and heteroleptic complexes, these last having N-donor ligands such as 1,10-phenanthroline or tris(3,5-dimethylpyrazol-1-yl)borate in their coordination sphere. Further complexes were obtained by reacting bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene dioxide with proper Group 3 and lanthanide precursors, having nitromalonaldehyde or bromomalonaldehyde as supporting ligands. In all the cases, the characterizations were corroborated by electrochemical measurements and diffusion spectroscopy. Reversible or quasi-reversible one-electron oxidation of the ferrocenyl moiety was detected for the new complexes, even if the corresponding ferricinium-based compounds resulted quite strong oxidants.

HETEROGENEOUS PHOTOCATALYTIC OXIDATION FOR THE REMOVAL OF BISPHENOL A FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTION OVER TiO2/GRAPHENE OXIDE (GO) BASED NANOCOMPOSITES
Ana Veternik, 2017, master's thesis

Abstract: Since water is an essential substance for all life on earth, it is therefore vital to prevent its pollution and to improve wastewater purification processes. There is a vast number of pollutants which can contaminate water, of which bisphenol A (known as an endocrine disruptor) is the pollutant studied herein. In this study, several TiO2/GO based nanocomposites with various GO loadings (2, 4, 10, 20 and 40%) and differently shaped nanocrystalline TiO2 phases (titanate nanotubes (TNTs) and calcined titanate nanotubes (TNTs_500)) were synthesised. All of the nanocomposites were characterised through SEM, UV-vis-DR, TGA, BET, FT-IR and CHNS analyses and were used in the heterogeneous photocatalytic degradation of bisphenol A and compared to the activity of pure TNTs and TNT_500 photocatalysts. All TiO2/GO nanocomposites exhibit much better activity than pure TNTs and TNTs_500 catalysts. The conversion of the BPA was analysed using HPLC and the mineralisation was analysed using a TOC analysis. The best experiment was performed with TNTs_500 + 10% GO composite, which can be attributed to the TiO2 crystalline structure obtained. According to the results obtained, TiO2 + 10% GO was found to exhibit the best degradation ratio, which can be ascribed to the fact that excessive GO can act as a charge carrier recombination centre and promotes the recombination of electron-hole pairs in reduced GO.
