Synthesis and characterization of novel Bi2MoO6/NaY materials and photocatalytic activities under visible light irradiation
Bismuth molybdate (Bi2MoO6) nanoparticles with the size of 10 nm were prepared on NaY type zeolite by the impregnation with Bi(NO3)3 and (NH4)6Mo7O24 solution and subsequent calcination at different temperatures. The mechanism of the formation of Bi2MoO6 nanoparticles on NaY type zeolite is discussed based on the adsorption data at various temperatures. The photocatalytic activities of the Bi2MoO6/NaY (BM) were evaluated by the degradation of methyl orange (MO) in aqueous solution under visible light irradiation.
