Facile deposition of Ag3PO4 nanoparticles on Bi2MoO6 nanoplates by microwave for highly efficient photocatalysis

A simple microwave method has been successfully developed to effectively produce Ag3PO4/Bi2MoO6 nanocomposites. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) have been employed to determine the phase and morphology of the as-produced products. The photocatalytic activities were tested through the rhodamine B (RhB) degradation under visiblelight radiation. The interaction between cubic Ag3PO4 nanoparticles and orthorhombic Bi2MoO6 nanoplates has been characterized by XRD and TEM. In this research, the as-produced heterostructure Ag3PO4/Bi2MoO6 nanocomposites display effective photogenerated charge transfer between Ag3PO4 and Bi2MoO6 which can improve charge separation. The 10.0 wt % Ag3PO4/Bi2MoO6 nanocomposites showed the highest photocatalytic performance as high as 4.36 times of the pure Bi2MoO6 sample.
