Abstract
Anatase N, F and Sm codoped TiO2 sol (N-F-Sm-TiO2) catalysts were prepared by a modified sol-gel hydrothermal method, using tetra butyl titanate as precursor. The morphology, particle size and the present forms of F, N and Sm atoms of as-prepared N-F-Sm-TiO2 sol were characterized by XRD TEM UV-Vis-DRS and XPS; The results showed that N-F-Sm-TiO2 particles in sol were anatase structure and the average particle size was ca. 15.0 nm calculated from XRD after hydrothermal reaction at 130 for 72 hours. It was also shown that fluorine and nitrogen atoms were adopted by TiO2 sol particles with two forms, one was physically adsorbed on the surface of TiO2, and the other was embedded into TiO2 crystal lattice and Sm did not incorporate into TiO2 crystal lattice, existed in the form of Sm2O3 formed binary metal compound with TiO2. It was found that the N-F-Sm-codoped TiO2 sol particles showed strong visible-light absorption and high photocatalytic activity for 4-chlorophenol under irradiation by visible light (400-500nm). The high visible-light photocatalytic activity of the obtained N-F-Sm-codoped TiO2 sol may result from the synergetic effect of nitrogen, fluorine and samarium co-doping.
