Application

Melamine can be used as a:
  • Reactant in the preparation of melamine trisulfonic acid (MTSA) which is used as a catalyst in various reactions.
  • Nitrogen source for the large scale synthesis of nitrogen-doped graphene (NG).
  • Heterogeneous catalyst in combination with lewis acid ZnI2 for conversion of carbon dioxide to cyclic carbonates.

The g-C(3)N(4) photocatalyst was synthesized by directly heating the low-cost melamine. The methyl orange dye (MO) was selected as a photodegrading goal to evaluate the photocatalytic activity of as-prepared g-C(3)N(4). The comparison experiments indicate that the photocatalytic activity of g-C(3)N(4)...
