Paper Title:
Wet-Chemical Synthesis and Enhanced Photocatalytic Performance of ZnO/Ag Micro Hybrid Material
  Abstract

A new type of ZnO/Ag micro hybrid material has been fabricated by a facile wet chemical method using citrate as a crystal growth modifier. The morphology and component of ZnO/Ag hybrid material were characterized by SEM and XRD. It is shown that the platelike crystals connect together by means of embedding. The sample is composed of wurtzite ZnO and face-centered cubic Ag. The results of XPS, UV-Vis and PL spectra verify the electron transfer from Ag to ZnO. The photocatalytic test with Rhodamine B (RhB) as a representative dye pollutant shows that the ZnO/Ag hybrid material exhibits an improved photocatalytic activity.
