Antibiotic contamination has become the primary environmental concern due to its potential to induce the emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs). To obtain the efficient antibiotic removal approach, the combination of photocatalysis and microalgae technology for the efficient removal and reducing environmental risk of three typical antibiotics (norfloxacin, oxytetracycline and sulfamethoxazole) was demonstrated in this study. The g-CN material, with advantages of low cost, simple synthesizing, nontoxic, and wider spectral absorption, was selected and synthesized by an easy thermal polymerization process of urea. Read More
