Abstract:
Hypothesized the incorporation of direct elemental sulfur (S) into graphene-oxide (GO) via simple sonication. Initially S@GO was prepared using simple ultrasonication and evaluated its photocatalytic property. In S@GO instead of photocatalytic activity the adsorption was predominant due the amphiphilic property of GO. Later, S@GO was utilized to prepare sulfur based rGO-TiO2 [S@rGO-TiO2 or SRT] hybrids using solvothermal method. Herein the addition of ubiquitous sulfur has been hypothesized to improve the efficiency of photocatalyst. When S@GO subjected to solvothermal treatment, unpredicted reaction took place and it is discussed later briefly, yet this S@rGO-TiO2 hybrid demonstrated high photocatalytic activity. Some essential characterization such as SEM, EDAX, XRD and Raman analysis were carried out and its photocatalytic performance were evaluated and compared with TiO2 and reduced graphene-oxide- TiO2. Our investigations will create a new pathway in futuristic development of SRT hybrids suitable for photocatalytic and waste-water treatment/remedial applications.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
