Abstract

P, N, and Mo ternary co-doped nano TiO2 photocatalysts ((P, N, Mo)-TiO2) were prepared by a single step sol-gel method, which show much enhanced photocatalytic activities over Mo-TiO2, (P, N)-TiO 2, un-doped TiO2 and Degussa P25 under visible light irradiation. The degradation rate of 0.72Mo-P-TiO2 is as high as 65.3%, which is about 6.7 times of that of Degussa P25. Possible reasons for the improvement of photocatalytic activities were analyzed.
