Abstract:

In the present work, ZnO/Bi2O3, SnO2/Bi2O3/Bi2O4 mixed oxide, Bi2O3 rod-like and SnO2nanoparticle have been synthesized. The obtained samples were characterized by field emissionscanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The optical properties ofsamples were evaluated by UV-Vis spectrophotometer. The photocatalytic activity of sampleswas evaluated by decolorization of methylene blue (M.B.) solution. The Present work indicatesthe improving or hampering effect of Bi2O3 on the photocatalytic activity of ZnO/Bi2O3. Theresults show that the photocatalytic performance of ZnO/Bi2O3 which is higher than that ofBi2O3, SnO2, and SnO2/Bi2O3/Bi2O4 is related to the presence of the zinc oxide semiconductor.Furthermore, results indicated that the photoactivity of the SnO2/Bi2O3 system was not improved.The present work affirms the importanat position of energy levels and also the separation ofphotogenerated electron/hole pairs on the efficient photocatalytic performance.
