Abstract:

Extensive research on mixed metal oxide nanomaterials to serve as destructive adsorbents and photocatalysts for detoxifying chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and biotoxins was carried out. This involved advanced inorganic synthesis, characterization, and testing and test methodology development. Aerogel and xerogel synthetic methods to high surface area titanium oxide, silicon oxide, and mixed TiO2-SiO2 were used. Metal ions of chromium, vanadium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, and silver were added to enhanced
