Abstract

In order to remove Cr(VI) from wastewater, conversion of Cr(VI) into Cr(III) is considered to be one of the usable methods, since Cr(III) is eco-friendly and can be easily precipitated and removed as a solid waste like Cr(OH) [2]. Therefore, how to efficiently treat the Cr(VI) in wastewater has attracted significant attention [3–5]. Recently, it has been reported that the semiconductor-mediated photocatalytic reduction technology as one method for treating Cr(VI) has many distinct advantages, such as simple operation, high efficiency, and no use or release of other undesirable chemicals [6, 7]. However, the fast recombination rate of the photo-generated electron–holes or only using UV irradiation of the semiconductor photocatalysts has affected the practical applications of photocatalysis technology to large-scale Cr(VI) wastewater treatment.
