Abstract

Substitutional doping of framework heteroatoms in photocatalysis is one of the approaches for harvesting visible light. Tunnel structure potassium antimony phosphate (K3Sb3P2O14·xH2O) and Cu2+, H+ , and N3- substituted K3Sb3P2O14·xH2O were prepared. These materials were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive spectra, infrared spectra, and UV–Vis diffuse reflectance spectra. All these compositions were crystallized in the rhombohedral crystal lattice with $$R\overline{3} m$$ R 3 ¯ m space group. The absorption edges of doped compositions were shifted to longer wavelength region considerably upon substitution of Cu2+, H+ , and N3−. The photocatalytic activity of these materials was tested against the degradation of methyl violet. The higher visible light photocatalytic activity of doped K3Sb3P2O14·xH2O compositions compared to parent material was discussed. N3−-doped K3Sb3P2O14·xH2O photocatalyst is stable even after the fourth cycle of photodegradation.
