Anchoring of silver nanoparticles on graphitic carbon nitride sheets for the synergistic catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol
Abstract In this paper, a facile process was developed for anchoring of silver nanoparticles on graphitic carbon nitride sheets (Ag/g-C 3 N 4 ) with high catalytic activity for reduction of 4-nitrophenol. The morphology and structure of the as-prepared Ag/g-C 3 N 4 composite were investigated by FESEM, TEM, XRD and XPS. The reaction mechanism and the reduction kinetics of 4-nitrophenol under different light irradiation were systematically studied. The results showed that the obtained Ag/g-C 3 N 4 composite exhibited a much higher electro/photo catalytic activity and stability for reduction of 4-nitrophenol. Significantly, due to the synergistic effect and interaction between highly dispersed Ag nanoparticles (Ag NPs, ∼7.2 nm) and lamellar g-C 3 N 4 , not only transfer of interfacial charge, but also the separation of photoinduced electrons occurred when the reaction was proceeded under light. In addition, the composite exhibited high stability and reusability during the cycling experiments. The results showed that the Ag/g-C 3 N 4 composite is an effective and stable electro/photo catalyst for reduction of 4-nitrophenol. Highlights Ag/g-C 3 N 4 composite was firstly used for catalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol. Ag/g-C 3 N 4 composite exhibited excellent catalytic activity. A synergistic effect and interaction of Ag NPs with g-C 3 N 4 was studied. A catalytic mechanism of composite under different conditions was elucidated. Graphical abstract [DISPLAY OMISSION]
