Speech Title: One-pot synthesis of AgVO3/palygorskite nanocomposite and its applications of visible light degradation and disinfection

Abstract: A series of AgVO3/palygorskite nanocomposites were synthesized by a facile one-pot precipitation route, wherein the AgVO3 nanoparticles were uniformly anchored on the surface of palygorskite nanofibers. Systematic characterization by XRD, SEM, TEM, UV-vis DRS, XPS, PL and photoelectrochemical measurements were employed to analyze the phase structure, morphology, chemical composition and photocatalytic mechanism. The applications, including photodegradation of RhB and photocatalytic inactivation of E. coli under visible light, were used to evaluate the photocatalytic activity of the as-obtained AgVO3/Palygorskite nanocomposites. The results indicate that all the AgVO3/palygorskite nanocomposites exhibit superior photocatalytic performance than pure AgVO3 both in the photodegradation and disinfection processes, of which the optimal content of AgVO3 is about 40 wt.%. The enhanced photocatalytic activity of AgVO3/palygorskite composites should be attributed to the enlarged specific surface area with the AgVO3 nanoparticle size decreased and the effective transfer and separation of the photogenerated charge carriers. This work could provide a new clue for designing natural mineral based highly efficient visible-light responding photocatalyst for the organic pollutants degradation and bacteria inactivation.
