Abstract

An efficient g-C3 N4 /BiVO4 heterojunction photocatalyst is constructed with BiVO4 networks decorated by discrete g-C3 N4 nano-islands with controllable coverage. The as-synthesized g-C3 N4 /BiVO4 photo-catalyst shows superior visible light photocatalytic activity. The enhanced photocatalytic activity can be ascribed to increased charge separation efficiency, separated redox reaction sites, fully exposed reactive interfaces, and excellent visible light response of g-C3 N4 /BiVO4 composite.
