Title
Inorganic ions promoted photocatalysis based on polymer photocatalyst
Abstract

•SO32− anion and Na+ cation both promoted the photodegradation of MO over g-C3N4 under visible light irradiation.•The chain reaction concerning sulfite anion initialed by photogenerated hole oxide can promote the formation of OH.•Na+ interaction with negatively charged nitrogen pots in g-C3N4 sheet can improve the charge separation and transport, thus accelerating the photodegradation MO.

This paper reports effect of inorganic ions on removal of organic pollutants over the g-C3N4 polymer photocatalyst by photocatalysis. The oxidation of SO32− by photogenerated hole on g-C3N4 will induce a chain reaction initialed by SO32− to form OH while the hole oxidation of SO32− increases the separation of photogenerated electron and hole, which process promotes the photogenerated electron induced multistep reduction of O2 generating OH to proceed. On the other hand, the cation, Na+, can interact with the negatively charged nitrogen pots in the C3N4 sheets via the ion dipole interaction. Such ion dipole interaction significantly improves the charge separation and transport, thus accelerating the formation of active species (OH). As a result of positive effect of Na+ and SO32− on photocatalysis of g-C3N4, the degradation rates of organic pollutants over g-C3N4 were significantly increased. Our studies offer the new opportunities for using the g-C3N4 with low cost and facile adjustable function to treat industrial wastewater containing organic pollutants.
