Abstract

Article history: Novel magnetically separable g-C N /Fe O /Ag CrO nanocomposites, as visible-light-driven photocata- 3 4 3 4 2 4 Received 24 November 2015 lysts, were prepared using a facile refluxing method with no require to any additives or post preparation Received in revised form 24 January 2016 treatments. The resultant samples were characterized by XRD, EDX, TEM, UV–vis DRS, FT–IR, TGA, PL, Accepted 28 January 2016 and VSM techniques. The photocatalytic activities of the resultant samples were investigated by degra- Available online 1 February 2016 dation of rhodamine B in aqueous solution under visible-light illumination. The results showed that the g-C N /Fe O /Ag CrO (20%) nanocomposite exhibited superior activity.
