Evaluation of the reaction mechanism for photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants with MIL-88A/BiOI structure under visible light irradiation

In this study, we synthesized novel visible light photocatalyst MIL-88A/BiOI using depositing BiOI particles on the surface of a metal–organic framework (MIL-88A). Photocatalytic application of binary composite MIL-88A/BiOI was obtained by discoloration of Methylene Blue (MB) and Acid Blue 92 (AB92) in aqueous solution under visible light source. The photodegradation experiments for treating organic dyes show that the MIL-88A/BiOI heterojunction structure possess a higher rate for decomposition of dyes due to the decreased aggregation of the BiOI nanoparticles, effective charge carrier separation and the synergistic effect between MIL-88A and BiOI samples as a heterojunction. Also, the MIL-88A/BiOI structure shows better photocatalytic degradation performance for anionic dyes (AB92) than for a cationic dye (MB). It was further found that OH and O2 radicals were the most important species responsible for the photodegradation test.
