The Study of Semiconductor Photocatalyzed Oxidation of Beta-Hydroxypropanoic Acid is Bening a Mediator of Variety of Industrial Chemicals

Dr. Pushkar Raj Meena


Abstract: Utilising semiconductor photocatalysis, a "green" method, has been widely used to remove environmental contaminants, including organic pollutants found inside and soluble hazardous materials found in waste water1-3. Due to its low cost, photo stability, chemical and biological inertness, and resistance to both chemical and photo corrosion, TiO2 is the most widely used photocatalyst. It is known that organic contaminants in waste water can degrade into CO2 and H2O in aqueous conditions, but that the organic compounds can also be selectively oxidised into fine chemical products rather than completely mineralized in aqueous conditions, dry organic solvent, controlled pH, irradiation time, by using visible or UV light, etc.4, 5. 3-Hydroxypropanoic acid (3-HPA) is an organic molecule with three carbons and two functions. It is categorised as an ?-hydroxyl-aliphatic carboxylic acid and has been found to be a powerful new generation chemical intermediate. In terms of the primary strategic building blocks derived from biological resources, it is ranked third 6. Because of its dual activity, it can be transformed into a variety of high-value compounds, such as polyesters, acrylic acid, propiolactone, and poly-3-HPA7. Through straightforward chemical reactions, these are used in the creation of adhesives, fibres, and resins. It can then selectively oxidise 3-HPA to produce malonic acid (MA) and its byproducts, which together account for a sizable market. Three-hydroxypropionic acid, the polymer used in polyester, degrades biologically 9. Therefore, research on the photocatalytic action of TiO2 sensitised on 3-hydroxypropionic acid is planned. The generated photo-product was separated into its derivatives, which were then examined using the proper spectral or other methodologies. Thus, this portion of the published work may stimulate chemists' and chemists' interest in multidisciplinary research.
