Abstract in another language

Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles were mesostructured by polybutadiene-block-poly(2-vinylpyridine) cylindrical polymer brushes as a template. Loading the positively charged vinylpyridine block with ZnO nanoparticles produced hybrid rods with high aspect ratio. Mesostructured ZnO nanotubes obtained by pyrolytic template removal show high activity in the photocatalytic degradation of ciprofloxacin using a continuous flow reactor and irradiation with terrestrial solar spectrum. In comparison with Degussa P25, a titanium dioxide photocatalyst, the degradation is 2.9 times faster. Due to its non-woven microstructure, the photocatalyst, moreover, can be easily separated from fluid reaction media by filtration.
