Abstract:


Background: Improper storage and raw materials make peanut oil susceptible to Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1). The semiconductor TiO2 photocatalysis technology is an effective technology which is widely used in sewage treatment, environmental protection and so on. Moreover, the photocatalytic efficiency can be improved by doping I.

Method: The experiment is divided into two parts. In the first part, supported TiO2 thin film (STF) was prepared on the quartz glass tube (QGT) by the sol-gel and calcination method and the supported iodine doped supported TiO2 thin film (I-STF) was synthesized using potassium iodate solution. In the second part, the photocatalytic degradation of AFB1 was performed in a self-made photocatalytic reactor. The AFB1 was detected by ELISA kit.

Results: The photocatalytic degradation of AFB1 has been proven to follow pseudo first-order reaction kinetics well (R2 > 0.95). The maximum degradation rate of 81.96%, which was reached at the optimum iodine concentration of 0.1mol/L, was 11.38% higher than that with undoped STF.

Conclusion: The doping of iodine reduces the band-gap of TiO2, thereby increasing the photocatalytic response range. The proportion of Ti4+ in I-STF has decreased, which means that Ti4+ are replaced by I. The I-STF prepared at iodine concentration of 0.1mol/L has good photocatalytic properties.
