Résumé

SiC foams were synthesized by impregnating preceramic polymer into polyurethane foam templates, resulting in a photo-catalytically active material for the degradation of methylene blue. The crystalline structure, electronic properties, and photocatalytic performance of the SiC foams were characterized using a series of experimental techniques, including X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, N2 physisorption measurements, UV-visible spectroscopy, and methylene blue photodegradation tests. The original polyurethane template’s microporous structure was maintained during the formation of the SiC foam, while additional mesopores were introduced by the porogen moieties added to the preceramic polymers. The prepared SiC-based photocatalyst showed attractive photocatalytic activity under visible light irradiation. This structured and reactive material offers good potential for application as a catalytic contactor or membrane reactor for the semi-continuous treatment of contaminated waste waters in ambient conditions.
