SOLVOTHERMAL SYNTHESIS OF BI2WO6 AND ITS PHOTOCATALYTIC ACTIVITY UNDER VISIBLE LIGHT IRRADIATION

Trinh Duy Nguyen

Abstract


Flower-like Bi2WO6 were successfully synthesized using the solvothermal method at different temperatures and characterized by XRD, FE-SEM, and DRS. We also investigated the photocatalytic activity of Bi2WO6 for the decomposition of rhodamine B under visible light irradiation. From XRD and SEM results, the reaction temperature has significant effects on the morphologies of the samples. From DRS results, Bi2WO6 samples displayed the absorption spectrum up to the visible region and then they showed the high photocatalytic activity under visible light irradiation, as a comparison with TiO2-P25.


Keywords


Bi2WO6, solvothermal method, rhodamine B, visible light irradiation.
