Paper Title:
Preparation and Photocatalytic Activity of N-TiO2/Sepiolite Nanocomposite
  Abstract

To utilize visible light and separate of TiO2 nanoparticles more efficiently in photocatalytic reactions, nitrogen doped TiO2/sepiolite composites (N-TiO2/sep) with different nitrogen contents were prepared by a sol-gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and UV-vis spectroscopy. XRD showed that anatase-TiO2 nanoparticles were loaded on the surface of sepiolite. XPS revealed that N atoms could incorporate into the lattice of anatase TiO2 substituting the sites of oxygen atoms. UV-vis spectroscopy showed that the visible light absorption of N-TiO2/sep samples decreased with the increase of calciantion temperature and increased with the increase of N content. The photocatalytic activities of obtained N-TiO2/sep samples were evaluated by methylene blue degradation under visible light irradiation. It was found that the N-TiO2/sep samples had the higher photocatalytic activity than that of TiO2/sep.
