Ag/Ag3PO4-doped BiPO4 heterostructures and their photocatalytic applications under visible light irradiation

, , , , , , , , ,
Ag/Ag3PO4-doped BiPO4 (Ag/Ag3PO4/BiPO4) heterostructures were synthesized by the hydrothermal method combined with the sonochemical process. Powder X-ray diffractometry, UV–Vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy were used to characterize the heterostructures. The [...]
