Synthesis and Photocatalytic Property of Cu3V2O8 Prepared by Liquid Phase Precipitation
Cu3V2O8 powder was prepared by the liquid phase precipitation method and characterized using XRD , SEM and BET. The photocatalytic decolorization of methyl orange in Cu3V2O8 powder suspension was investigated using 20w UV light as light source．The result shows that the the liquid-phase precipitation method is a simple and effective method for Cu3V2O8 powder preparation. It was found that the sample prepared with the n(V)/n(Cu)moral ratio be 2/3, pH=7 and calcinated under 750°C for 4 hours was pure triclinc Cu3V2O8 phase.
