Title
Improved photocatalytic activity of g-C3N4/TiO2 composites prepared by a simple impregnation method
Abstract

g-C3N4 and TiO2 hybrid structures are synthesized by means of a simple impregnation method having good photoactivities for the degradation of phenol under UV irradiation. From the wide structural and surface characterization we have stated that the presence of g-C3N4 notably affect the surface feature of TiO2 (surface area and pore size distribution). Enhanced photoactivities have been obtained for composites systems. The best result was obtained for 2 wt% loading of g-C3N4 leading to a 70% of improvement with respect to bare TiO2 in the reaction rate. The effective charge carrier separation was proposed as the responsible of such improved photoactivity.
