BiOI photocatalyst was successfully synthesized following a rapid synthesis by using microwave irradiation and EDTA as retarder of the reaction in aqueous medium. The effect of the amount of EDTA in the physical properties of BiOI such as specific surface area, morphology and photocatalytic activity was determined. The photocatalytic activity of BiOI samples was tested in the degradation reaction of rhodamine B in aqueous medium, and in the photo-oxidation reaction of nitric oxide in gaseous phase, in both cases under UV–Vis irradiation. The sample prepared with 40 % of EDTA at 110 °C exhibited the highest specific surface area of the system, and at the same time the highest photocatalytic activity in both photocatalytic reactions revealing the weight of this parameter in the process.
