Visible light assisted photocatalytic degradation of 2-aminophenol using H2O2 sensitized BiVO4
Author(s): A. M. Umabala, P. Suresh and A. V. Prasada Rao
Visible light photocatalytic degradation of 2-aminophenol is investigated using BiVO4 synthesized by room temperature solid-state metathesis reaction using the precursors BiOCl and NaVO3. Addition of external oxidant H2O2 enhanced the rate of degradation of 2-aminophenol. Complete photodegradation of 10ppm 2-aminophenol occurred for 5h of visible light irradiation in presence of 100 mg of BiVO4. Synergetic effect is noticed between BiVO4 and H2O2.
