Title: Ag-ligand modified tungstovandates and their efficient catalysis degradation properties for methylene blue

Abstract

Two polytungstovandates [Ag(mbpy){sub 2}][Ag{sub 2}(mbpy){sub 3}][VW{sub 5}O{sub 19}]·H{sub 2}O (1) and [Ag(mbpy)]{sub 2}[Ag(mbpy){sub 2}]{sub 4}[VW{sub 12}O{sub 40}] (2) (mbpy =4,4′-dimethyl-2,2′-bipyridyl), had been hydrothermally synthesized and characterized by IR, TG, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. Single-crystal structural analysis revealed that the polyanionic clusters in two compounds are different: Lindqvist-type in 1 and α-Keggin-type in 2, respectively, while the cationic moieties in them are Ag-mbpy units. The experiments showed that this kind of hybrid crystal materials possesses more efficiently catalytic performance for the degradation of organic dye methylene blue (MB) in water solution under the UV irradiation. The significant degradation rate of MB can reach 89.9%, 94.9% by crystals 1 and 2 (40 mg) in the course of about 5 min. - Graphical abstract: Two Ag-ligand modified polytungstovandates had been synthesized and characterized, which were active in the catalytic degradation of organic dye methylene blue under the UV irradiation. - Highlights: • Two Ag-ligand modified tungstovandates were synthesized and characterized. • Weak interactions play important roles in constructing crystal frameworks. • Compounds are active to catalyze the degradation of methylene blue.

  • Highlights: • SiNWs modified with Pd, Au and Pt were used as photocatalysts to degrade MB. • Yield of photodegardation increases with UV irradiation time. • SiNWs modified with Pd nanoparticles show the best photocatalytic activity. • A degradation of 97% was obtained after 200 min of UV irradiation. - Abstract: Silicon nanowires (SiNWs) modified with Au, Pt and Pd nanoparticles were used as heterogeneous photocatalysts for the photodegradation of methylene blue in water under UV light irradiation. The modification of SiNWs was carried out by deposition of metal nanoparticles using the electroless metal deposition (EMD) technique. The effect ofmore » metal nanoparticles deposition time on the photocatalytic activity was studied. It was found that the photocatalytic activity of modified SiNWs was enhanced when the deposition time of metal nanoparticles was increased. In addition of modified SiNWs with Pt, Au and Pd nanoparticles, oxidized silicon substrate (Ox-Si), oxidized silicon nanowires (Ox-SiNWs) and hydrogen-terminated silicon nanowires (H-SiNWs) were also evaluated for the photodegradation of methylene blue.« less
  • A series of copper-deposited titania were prepared by photoreduction method under irradiation with a 125-W high-pressure mercury lamp. From XPS and AES results, the deposited-copper formed Ti-O-Cu bond on the surface of TiO{sub 2}, and the Cu species on the surface of copper-deposited TiO{sub 2} can be identified as Cu(I). The photocatalytic degradation activity of methylene blue for the Cu{sub 2}O-TiO{sub 2} series increased with increasing Cu{sub 2}O-deposited content, and then decreased. The highest photocatalytic degradation activity of methylene blue was obtained for 0.16% Cu{sub 2}O-TiO{sub 2}. When copper-deposited content reached to 0.32%, the photocatalytic activity was lower than thatmore » of pure TiO{sub 2}. It is shown that Cu{sub 2}O on the surface of TiO{sub 2} can trap electrons from the TiO{sub 2} conduction band, and the electrons trapped on the Cu{sub 2}O-TiO{sub 2} site are subsequently transferred to the surrounding adsorbed O{sub 2}, thereby avoiding electron-hole recombination, and enhancing the photocatalytic activity. Excess copper loading may screen the photocatalyst from the UV source, so the photocatalytic activity diminishes with increasing Cu{sub 2}O.« less
  • CuO/BiVO{sub 4} composite photocatalysts were prepared by solution combustion synthesis method and impregnation technique. X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, field-emission scan electron microscopy and UV-vis diffusion reflectance spectra were used to identify the physical properties and photophysical properties of CuO/BiVO{sub 4} composite photocatalysts. The photocatalysts exhibit the enhanced photocatalytic properties for degradation of methylene blue under visible-light ({lambda} > 420 nm). The mechanism of improved photocatalytic activity is also discussed.
  • Highlights: • The (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} nanoparticles were prepared and characterized. • The spectrum absorption region of (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} is red-shifted to visible light. • The recombination of the photo-generated electron–hole pairs of (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} is suppressed. • The photocatalytic activity of (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} is more higher than that of TiO{sub 2}-P25, N-TiO{sub 2} and the Yb-TiO{sub 2}. - Abstract: (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} photocatalyst has been synthesized by sol–gel method combined with microwave chemical synthesis. Also, the efficiency of the (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} as a photocatalyst for the degradation of methylene blue (MB) using visible light irradiationmore » has been evaluated. The prepared samples were characterized by XRD, TEM, XPS, UV–vis-DRS and PL. The results show that the (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} photocatalyst has the anatase TiO{sub 2} crystalline phase. The TEM micrograph demonstrated that the average particle size of the sample was about 12 nm. The band-gap energy absorption edge shifted to longer wavelength as compared to commercial TiO{sub 2}-P25, N-TiO{sub 2} and the Yb-TiO{sub 2} prepared by our group. Results of degradation revealed that the (Yb, N)-TiO{sub 2} has shown much more higher photocatalytic activity than that of the TiO{sub 2}-P25, the N-TiO{sub 2} and the Yb-TiO{sub 2} under the visible light.« less
