Photocatalytically active La2Ti2O7 nanostructures, synthesis and characterization

Photocatalytically active La2Ti2O7 nanostructures, synthesis and characterization The major goal of this study was to synthesize La2Ti2O7 nanoparticles, using capping agent like cetyltrimethylammonium bromide, sodium dodecyl sulfate, poly vinyl pyrrolidone and glucose. Next the effects of the different agents on the morphology and size of final product particles were evaluated using XRD, SEM, FT-IR, PL and UV–Vis spectroscopy. Further the optimal nano-sized particles were used for the catalysis of light-induced photo-degradation of methyl orange under UV irradiation. The results revealed that 95.3% of the pollutant (i.e. methylene blue) was degraded, leading to the decolorization of the samples after 40 min of UV irradiation, in the presence of the particles.
