Abstract This study investigates the photocatalytic activity of a novel Mn-doped Bi4O5Br2 material prepared via a facile synthesis process. The experimental and theoretical results confirm that Mn doping enhances the efficiency of NO removal over a Bi4O5Br2 catalyst under visible light irradiation. The SEM (scanning electron microscopy), BET (Brunauer-Emmet-Teller), XRD (X-ray diffraction) analyses show that neither the surface morphology nor the phase of the photocatalytic material changes after the incorporation of Mn. The ESR (electron spin resonance) and UPS (Ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy) results show that the electrons in the CBM (conduction band minimum) can be directly captured by O2 to produce large amounts of •O2 radicals, and •OH radicals are formed via the route of •O2−→H2O2→•OH. The higher efficiency of Mn-doped Bi4O5Br2 is driven by the reduced band gap, widened visible light absorption range, higher intensity of visible light absorption, and enhanced separation efficiency of electrons and holes in this material compared with those of pristine Bi4O5Br2.

Abstract In the drive toward the ever-increasing standards for high-quality drinking water, exploring stable and efficient photocatalysts with excellent visible light (VL) harvesting ability for the photocatalytic water disinfection is still a challenging problem. However, most photocatalysts are solely metal-based or contain at least one metal-containing cocatalyst with detrimental environment impacts. Here, we show that a novel metal-free 2D heterostructure (BP-CN) composed of black phosphorus...

A fluorine-doped, chlorine-intercalated carbon nitride (CNF-Cl) photocatalyst has been synthesized for simultaneous improvements in light harvesting capability along with suppression of charge recombination in bulk g-C3N4. The formation of heterojunctions of these CNF-Cl nanosheets with low bandgap, earth abundant bismuth oxyiodide (BiOI) was achieved, and the synthesized heterojunctions were tested as active photoanodes in photoelectrochemical water splitting experiments. BiOI/CNF-Cl heterojunc...

Abstract BiOBr-based composite photocatalysts had attracted extensive attention for efficient photocatalytic degradation aqueous organic pollutants in the past decade. However, the catalysis ability of photocatalyst is greatly limited by their intrinsic high recombination rate of photo-generated charge carriers. Herein, we solve this problem by constructing a novel 2D/3D Bi5O7Br/BiOBr heterojunction photocatalyst that was prepared via one-step facile hydrolysis process. The pure Bi5O7Br and pure...

Abstract We report a simple method to fabricate Mn-doped poly(triazine imide) (PTI) by using melamine and cyanuric chloride as the building blocks, and Mn as the coupling agent. This material forms a two-dimensional imide-bridged triazine (C6N9H3) network, with an ordered arrangement of 24-atom voids. The synthesized PTI exhibits a large magnetization due to the localized d-electrons of Mn2+ ions, which suggests that PTI contains a large number of Mn2+ ions in the 24-atom voids. In addition, on ...

Abstract By means of density functional theory-based spin polarized first-principles computations, we systematically investigate the stable geometry, total energy, magnetic and electronic properties of 3d transition metal (TM) atoms substituted and adsorbed on monolayer (ML) Janus MoSSe. We first identify the most stable binding sites and their corresponding total energies as well. The results show that the most stable adsorption site is above the Mo atoms in the S atom side. It is found that th...

Abstract As a direct Z -scheme photocatalyst, a two-dimensional/two-dimensional (2D/2D) Bi 2 O 2 CO 3 /Bi 4 O 5 Br 2 (BOC/BOB) heterostructure was fabricated by stacking the ultrathin nanosheets of Bi 2 O 2 CO 3 and Bi 4 O 5 Br 2 via a simple one-step hydrothermal synthesis process. The atomic force microscopy (AFM) and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) results show that the heterostructure was successfully formed by coupling the ultrathin nanosheets of BOC and BOB. By opt...

Abstract Bismuth oxyhalide (BiOX) photocatalysts have attracted tremendous attentions due to their unique optical and electronic properties. However, pristine BiOX suffered from inherent drawbacks and unsatisfactory photocatalytic performance. Interest in engineering layered structure BiOX for efficient environment remediation has grown exponentially. Recent studies tend to focus on alloying, bismuth-rich strategies, defect introduction, element doping. Therefore, the aim of this review is to su...

Several parameters, including specific surface area, morphology, crystal size, and dopant concentration, play a significant role in improving the photocatalytic performance of ZnO. However, it is still unclear which of these parameters play a significant role in enhancing the photocatalytic activity. Herein, undoped and Mn-, Co-, and Cu-doped platelet-like zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures were synthesized via a facile microwave synthetic route, and their ultraviolet (UV) and visible-light-induced...

Abstract In this study, a kind of novel camellia-like Bi12ZnO20 photocatalyst was synthesized by self-assembly process of 2D nanosheets, and the ordered mesoporous were distributed on the surfaces of the camellia petals. A kind of ordered mesoporous ZnO (OMZ) material must be used as precursor, and the sodium sulfosalicylate (Na3SSA) must be used as structure-directing agent in hydrothermal reaction process. The Bi12ZnO20 compound has even been reported in Bi12ZnO20–Bi2WO6 heterostructures, it i...

In this paper, a theoretical simulation based on a finite-difference time-domain method (FDTD) shows that the solar absorber can reach ultra-broadband and high-efficiency by refractory metals titanium (Ti) and titanium nitride (TiN). In the absorption spectrum of double-size cross-shaped absorber, the absorption bandwidth of more than 90% is 1182 nm (415.648–1597.39 nm). Through the analysis of the field distribution, we know the physical mechanism is the combined action of propagating plasmon r...

A ZnO seed layer was formed on the fluorine-doped tin oxide substrate by magnetron sputtering, and then a ZnO nanorod was grown on the ZnO seed layer by a hydrothermal method. Next, we prepared a single-crystal Ag seed layer by magnetron sputtering to form a ZnO@Ag composite heterostructure. Finally, Ag3PO4 crystals were grown on the Ag seed layer by a stepwise deposition method to obtain a ZnO@Ag@Ag3PO4 ternary heterojunction. The composite heterostructure of the material has super strong hydro...

A simple metamaterial absorber is proposed to achieve near-perfect absorption in visible and near-infrared wavelengths. The absorber is composed of metal-dielectric-metal (MIM) three-layer structure. The materials of these three-layer structures are Au, SiO2, and Au. The top metal structure of the absorber is composed of hollow three-dimensional metal rings regularly arranged periodically. The results show that the high absorption efficiency at a specific wavelength is mainly due to the resonanc...
