Paper Title:
Synthesis and Photocatalytic Property of BiVO4/FeVO4 Composite Novel Photocatalyst
  Abstract

BiVO4/FeVO4 composite photocatalyst samples were prepared by calcining the mixture of FeVO4 and BiVO4 precusor which were prepared through liquid phase precipitation method for further increasing the photocatalytic efficiency of FeVO4. The catalysts were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microsoope(SEM)and specific surface area (BET). The photocatalytic activity was evaluated by photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange (MO) solution under visible light. The XRD patterns indicate that BiVO4/FeVO4 composite photocatalysts consist of triclinic phase and the lattice was not distorted beacause of doping Bi. But the morphology change greatly and the specific surface area has little change. In the experimental conditions used, the optimal photocatalytic activity for all the prepared samples was reached when BiVO4 doping was 22 at%. The degradation rate of MO was increased by 20% or so than that of pure FeVO4.
