g-C3N4/Fe3O4/Cu2O composites were prepared successfully by liquid phase reduction-precipitation method with melamine, anhydrous copper sulfate, ferric chloride as the main raw material. The morphology and structure of the composites were characterized by SEM, IR and XRD. Using reactive brilliant red X-3B solution (X-3B) as a model pollutant, the visible-light photocatalytic performance of the composites was compared with pure Cu2O and g-C3N4/Fe3O4. The results showed that Cu2O was inlaided in honeycomb-like g-C3N4 matrix embedded with Fe3O4 nanoparticles, and g-C3N4/Fe3O4/Cu2O composites had good magnetically separable performance. Compared with pure Cu2O and g-C3N4/Fe3O4, g-C3N4/Fe3O4/Cu2O composites exhibited enhanced efficiency for photocatalytic degradation of X-3B under visible light irradiation.
