An Efficient Removal of Rhodamine B in Water by Targeted Adsorption on SnS2 Nanosheets
Two kinds of SnS2 materials were prepared through the hydrothermal route, respectively using thioacetamide (TAA) and thiourea as the sulfur source. The as-prepared SnS2 samples were characterized with X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and N2-sorption. The results showed that the SnS2 sample prepared with TAA had a lengthening shape, a smaller size and surface area, but a better adsorption of rhodamine B (RhB). X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analysis was used to confirm that there was an interaction between RhB molecule and SnS2 contributing to the strong adsorption of RhB.
