Evaluation the Efficiency of CuFe₂O₄ Prepared Photolysis by OSD and Photo degradation

Rawnaq B. Jimaa, Zaid H. Mahmoud, arah K. Ali

The magnetic structure, optical properties of copper ferrite in photodegradation and Oxidative desulfurization were investigated in this paper. The product was characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, EDXS, XPS, VSM, PL and FTIR. The results from XRD obviously revealed the tetragonal spinal structure of CuFe2O4, while the FTIR analysis appeared as a fundamental vibration assigned to oxygen metal at octahedral and tetrahedral sites. The spherical morphology with the size in the nano range was obtained from SEM and TEM analysis, and these results were in agreement with the results from XRD. The magnetic properties were investigated using VSM, and the results showed the highest value of the saturation magnetization (Ms) (80 emu/g) with the low coercive force (72 Oe). The ratio percentage and its purity were explored from EDXM and XPS analysis, and the results obtained showed some carbon on the surface of ferrite, while the analysis of PL luminescent showed many emission peaks back to copper ferrite which was appeared in the visible region. The synthesized material showed very high efficiency to recover, and the degradation of sulfur compound and Azo dyes reached to 93% and 95%; respectively.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters is an international double-blind peer reviewed publication which publishes scientific research & review articles related to insects that contain information of interest to a wider audience, e.g. papers bearing on the theoretical, genetic, agricultural, medical and biodiversity issues. Emphasis is also placed on the selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance. In addition to full-length research articles and reviews, the journal publishes interpretive articles in a Forum section, Short Communications, and Letters to the Editor. The journal publishes reports on all phases of medical entomology and medical acarology, including the systematics and biology of insects, acarines, and other arthropods of public health and veterinary significance.

Announcement and Advertisement
Announcements regarding scientific activities such as conferences, symposium, are published for free. Advertisements can be either published or placed on website as banners.

Entomology and Applied Science Letters supports the submission of entomological papers that contain information of interest to a wider reader groups e. g. papers bearing on taxonomy, phylogeny, biodiversity, ecology, systematic, agriculture, morphology. The selection of comprehensive, revisionary or integrated systematics studies of broader biological or zoogeographical relevance is also important. Distinguished entomologists drawn from different parts of the world serve as honorary members of the Editorial Board. The journal encompasses all the varied aspects of entomological research.
