Abstract: TiO2 nano powder doping with Sn4+ was directly synthesized by a low temperature hydrothermal method using tetrabutyl titanate (TBOT) as a Ti resource and NH4Cl as a dispersant. The synthesized nano powder was characterized by XRD, BET, TEM and EDS analyses. XRD results show that increasing reaction temperature facilitates to form a stable phase, and the synthesized nano power size is uniform with particle size of 10-20 nm. Doping Sn4+ ion does not result in an obvious lattice distortion. The effect of doping Sn4+ ion on photocatalytic activity in visible light region for modified TiO2 was investigated by degrading methylene blue solution.

Abstract: The PVP+Ti (OC4H9)4+SnCl4·5H2O/sesame oil composite fibers were successfully prepared by a sol-gel method combined with a coaxial electrospinning technique. The Sn4+/TiO2 nanotubes were obtained by calcining the above-mentioned composite fibers and characterized by XRD and TEM. XRD results show that increasing reaction temperature facilitates to form a stable phase. TEM results show that the Sn4+/TiO2 nanotubes have smooth surface with wall thickness of ~120 nm and are composed of small particles of ~5 nm. The photocatalytic activity of Sn4+/TiO2 nanotubes was investigated. The photodegradation efficiency of Sn4+/TiO2 nanotubes decreases in UV region but increases in visible light region. The photocatalytic properties of three 0.52at% Sn4+/TiO2 nanomaterials with different morphologies were also evaluated. The photodegradation efficiencies of Sn4+/TiO2 nanopowers, Sn4+/TiO2 nanofibers and Sn4+/TiO2 nanotubes increase in visible light region in sequence. In summary, chemical modification by doping Sn4+ and morphology changing for TiO2 can improve its photocatalytic activity in visible light region significantly.
