Ag/AgO loaded g-C3N4 microsphere photocatalysts
What is it about?
Silver-based photocatalysts are known to have antibacterial and semiconducting properties. We have shown for the first time co-existence of silver (0) and silver (II) oxide on carbon nitride surface with microspherical morphology. A thorough investigation has been conducted on the synthesis of catalyst and correlations between characterization, related properties are presented in brief.
Why is it important?
A rare existence of Ag/AgO(II) is observed. The combination of carbon nitride and Ag/AgO microspheres increased the conductivity and improved photocatalytic performance. Due to surface plasmon resonance catalyst were effective in bacterial inactivation and degradation of organic dyes,
