Abstract

Keywords Ag PO  Photocatalyst  Rhombic dodecahedron  Simulated 3 4 solar light Introduction Semiconductor photocatalysts have attracted great attention due to their great potential in solving numerous environmental and energy problems ranging from degrading organic contaminants and water splitting to artificial photosynthesis, and most of them are chemically stable [1–7]. Among the various photocatalysts, TiO has been widely studied due to its appropriate band gap, stability and low cost, non- toxicity, and environment friendly advantages. However, they are photoactive only under UV light, which covers only 3–4% of the solar spectrum [8], and so are limited in the solar spectrum that consists of 45% of visible and about 51% infrared light [9]. To address this issue, numerous studies have been conducted for the exploration and fabrication of photocatalysts to improve the photocatalytic properties in the visible region of the solar spectrum during the past few decades. Recently, Yi et al. [10] reported a Ag PO (silver phosphate) semiconductor 3 4 photocatalytic application, which exhibits extremely high photooxidative capabil- ities for the evolution of O from water and organic dye decomposition under visible light irradiation. It has therefore attracted great attention in the application of photocatalysts under visible
