Title
Combinational effect of Pt/SrTiO3:Rh photocatalyst and SnPd/Al2O3 non-photocatalyst for photocatalytic reduction of nitrate to nitrogen in water under visible light irradiation
Abstract

•Pt/SrTiO3:Rh–SnPd/Al2O3 system promoted photocatalytic reduction of NO3− in water.•Pt/SrTiO3:Rh–SnPd/Al2O3 system was superior in activity and selectivity to SnPd/SrTiO3:Rh.•Selectivity to N2 was 94% under the optimum reaction conditions.•H2, H2CO, and HCOOH formed on Pt/SrTiO3:Rh acted as reductants for NO3− over SnPd/Al2O3.

Photocatalytic reduction of nitrate in water in the co-presence of Pt/SrTiO3:Rh and SnPd/Al2O3 under visible light irradiation (λ > 420 nm) was investigated. This reaction system efficiently and selectively promoted the photocatalytic reduction of nitrate to nitrogen, whereas Pt/SrTiO3:Rh or SnPd/Al2O3 alone showed little activity under the reaction conditions. The selectivity to N2 was 94% under the optimum reaction conditions, where the amounts of Pt/SrTiO3:Rh and SnPd/Al2O3 loaded in the reaction system were 500 mg and 150 mg, respectively. This reaction system showed a superior nitrate decomposition rate and superior selectivity to nitrogen compared with SrTiO3:Rh directly modified with SnPd bimetal. From analysis of the reaction mechanism, hydrogen formed by photoreduction of water over Pt/SrTiO3:Rh acted as the reductant for a non-photocatalytic nitrate conversion reaction over SnPd/Al2O3. Moreover, the products, including formaldehyde and formic acid, formed by photo-oxidation of methanol over Pt/SrTiO3:Rh acted as reductants for nitrate over SnPd/Al2O3.
