This research shows that aromatic compounds is a factor which is the source of these diseases, therefore the researchers made an effort to solve this problem.

Hatami stated that PH of the photocatalyst, various Optical Spectrum, as well as the hardness of water were investigated in this research, “in an optimal stage and under the visible light, we succeeded to remove pollutants up to 85%.”

As the researcher noted, the way of combining materials in making this composite was completely new and innovative.
