Ag3PO4 was loaded on sulfonated polyphenylene sulfide (SPPS) superfine fibre by a facile precipitation method. Both the structure and properties of the as-synthesized Ag3PO4/SPPS composites were characterized via XRD, SEM, EDS, XPS, FTIR, and UV-vis. The photocatalytic performance of Ag3PO4/SPPS composites was investigated via degradation of Methylene blue(MB) solution under visible light irradiation. The degradation results revealed that the photocatalytic activity of Ag3PO4/SPPS composites was greatly enhanced by the incorporation of Ag3PO4 with SPPS superfine fibre. For concentrations of AgNO3 and Na2HPO4 solutions of 0.3 M and 0.06 M in the preparation process, the Ag3PO4/SPPS composite showed higher photocatalytic activity under visible light irradiation.
