The In2O3/Bi2WO6 heterostructured microbelts with the diameters around 500 nm–1 μm have been fabricated by electrospinning combined with the annealing process. The as-prepared microbelts were characterized by thermogravimetric and differential scanning calorimetry, fourier transform infrared spectroscope, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope and transmission electron microscope. It was found that the In2O3/Bi2WO6 microbelts reported here showed the well-defined morphology. Additionally, In2O3/Bi2WO6 heterostructured microbelts exhibit the enhanced photocatalytic activity under the simulated sunlight irradiation compared with the pure Bi2WO6 microbelts.
