Abstract

SmVO4 nanoparticles were synthesized through a fast and simple procedure (green method). The effects of three parameters including temperature, type of capping agent, and concentration on the size and morphology behavior of SmVO4 nanoparticles were explored. The analysis of SmVO4 nanoparticles was performed through some techniques including, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, x-ray diffraction, energy dispersive x-ray microanalysis, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, thermogravimetry, differential thermal analysis, ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy, and vibrating sample magnetometers. The study of photocatalytic behaviour of the SmVO4 nanoparticles in various conditions has been carried out. The impacts of different factors such as dosage, grain size, and kind of pollutant (methylene blue = MB and methyl orange = MO) on the photocatalytic property of SmVO4 nanoparticles were assessed. The photocatalytic activities of SmVO4 catalysts were studied for the degradation of dye under visible light (λ > 400 nm).
