Specific oriented recognition of a new stable ICTX@Mfa with retrievability for selective photocatalytic degrading of ciprofloxacin

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new imprinted photocatalyst ICTX@Mfa is prepared by employing a molecular imprinting technique, which is authenticated via a variety of modern analysis methods. It exhibits superior specific oriented recognition capability, stability and retrievability for selectively degrading common antibiotic ciprofloxacin molecules under visible light. Through gaining an insight into the photocatalytic mechanism of ciprofloxacin molecules over ICTX@Mfa, we can confirm that the generation of holes and hydroxyl radicals plays a major role in degrading ciprofloxacin in virtue of the active species detection experiments. This work puts forward a new design idea and provides an illustrative example for selective oriented removal of the specified organic pollutant molecules according to practical requirements.
