Hydrothermal Synthesis, Characterization and Photocatalytic Properties of Zn/Sn-Composite Oxides
The Zn/Sn-composite oxide nanogranules were synthesized via a simple hydrothermal method, and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The results show that the hydrothermal temperature significantly influences the morphology, microstructure, and composition of the as-prepared samples. And the nano-sized ZnO/Zn2SnO4 exhibited high photocatalytic activities on the degradation of methyl orange (MO) under ultraviolet (UV) light irradiation.
