摘要

The development of photocatalysts to degrade organic pollutants from wastewater under visible light has attracted a lot of interest. Herein, a series of Bi2O2CO3 (BOC) coupled with interlayer expanded MoS2 (IEM) photocatalysts were synthesized via a facile two-pot hydrothermal technique. Among all the samples, 5 % of BOC with IEM (5 % BOC-IEM) nanocomposite exhibited the highest photodegradation with 94 % (4.97 × 10−2 min−1) for Methylene Blue (MB) dye removal under 1 W LED visible light. The performance by 5 % BOC-IEM is 1.5 times and 13.4 times higher than the parent IEM and BOC, respectively. Increased photocurrent density, lowest PL intensity, and smallest EIS arc further evidenced the lowered charge carrier's recombination rate in the optimized 5 % BOC-IEM heterostructure. Moreover, the outstanding photocatalytic performance of 5% BOC-IEM was due to the presence of oxygen vacancies, enhanced light absorption, and improved migration and separation of charge carriers. An Ohmic contact formed on the interfaces of BOC and IEM boosts the Z-scheme charge transfer mechanism, which greatly improves the photocatalytic activity of 5% BOC-IEM.
