BiOI/MWCNT composites for phenol degradation under visible light

In the present work, composites of BiOI with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) of different compositions (0.5%, 1%, and 2% in weight percentage) were synthesized via hydrothermal synthesis at different time and temperature conditions (4:30 and 6:30 hours at 120°C and 150°C each). The composites...

Description
Summary:In the present work, composites of BiOI with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) of different compositions (0.5%, 1%, and 2% in weight percentage) were synthesized via hydrothermal synthesis at different time and temperature conditions (4:30 and 6:30 hours at 120°C and 150°C each). The composites were characterized by X-Ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) for their structural, morphological and optical properties. The morphology of the composites varied with different temperature conditions. The nano-plates/sheets-like structure was observed at 120°C while microflowers were observed at 150°C. However, no significant results were observed in overall photocatalytic efficiency of the composites with change in morphology. BiOI/MWCNT showed enhanced photocatalytic degradation of phenol under visible light as compared to BiOI.
