Scholarcy highlights

  • With the discovery of antibiotics, such as penicillin, for human beings to ght infectious diseases, there is a common phenomenon of abusing antibiotics to cope with various illnesses
  • The analysis of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy results showed that the adsorption of TiO2@C on TC was mainly physical adsorption, which was in accordance with the pseudo- rst-order kinetic model
  • Core–shell TiO2@C ultralong nanotubes were prepared using a solvothermal process followed by anhydrous ethanol carbonization
  • The adsorption experiment proves that the TiO2@C composite adsorbent can adsorb three kinds of typical antibiotics effectively
  • The work provides a practical case for the future development of more composite adsorbents and lays a foundation for the industrialization of composite materials
