Paper Title:
Synthesis of Nanocrystalline InVO4 by Hydrothermal Process and its Visible-Light Photocatalytic Activity
  Abstract

Monophasic orthorhombic InVO4 was synthesized using InCl3 and NH4VO3 as starting materials by a hydrothermal approach. The as-prepared InVO4 product was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and UV-visible diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS). It was found that the as-prepared InVO4 shows strong visible-light absorption with absorption onset of 515 nm, indicating a narrow optical band gap of 2.4 eV. Furthermore, the as-prepared InVO4 shows high visible-light photocatalytic activity for decomposition of methyl orange, which is ascribed to the strong visible-light absorption.
