Preparation and Photocatalytic Activity of Titania Pillared Montmorillonite Doped with Boron
Boron doping titanium pillared montmorillonite (B-Ti-mont) were prepared by the sol-gel technique using sodic montmorillonite (Na-mont) as a substrate. Several technics such as XRD, SEM, UV-vis diffuse reflection spectra were used to characterize the samples. The results showed that all of the samples were of anatase, the absorption in the visible light region was strengthened after doped with boron. The basic skeleton of montmorillonite did not change after doping. The photocatalyst with the boron mole content of 5% displayed the best photocatalytic performance.
