Preparation and High Photocatalytic Performance of Spherical BiOCl Photocatalyst

Abstract:

Article Preview

The smooth spherical BiOCl photocatalyst was synthesized successfully by a facile solvothermal method and further characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectrometer and UV-Vis diffuse reflectance spectra techniques. The photocatalytic activity of as-prepared photoctalyst was evaluated by the degradation of Rhodamine B (RhB) under visible light irradiation (λ>420 nm). The results showed that the BiOCl with smooth spherical morphology exhibits an excellent photocatalytic activity and stability. RhB was thoroughly degraded after 60 min of visible light irradiation.
