Characterization of Nitrogen and Magnesium-Doped With Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) Using TGA/ DTA Analysis for Wastewater Treatment Applications
Water is an important raw material for most of the industries and it is necessary to find a good wastewater treatment at industrial level in order to sustain and protect the water resource. An efficient and applicable wastewater treatment method need to be identified. Wastewater released from these industries may contain about 15% to 20% dyes. These dyes have complex chemical structures which cannot be treated easily. The objectives of this research is to synthesis theTiO2 then will doped with nitrogen (N) and magnesium (Mg). From that, the N-TiO2and Mg-TiO2will characterized using Thermogravimetric and Differential Thermal (TGA/ DTA) analysis. Results found that for 0.5% of N-TiO2and Mg-TiO2shows different phase and characteristics of sample at different calcination temperature (300oC, 500oC and 700oC).
