MnV2O6⋅V2O5 cross-like nanobelt arrays: synthesis, characterization and photocatalytic properties

Abstract

Single-crystalline MnV2O6⋅V2O5 cross-like nanobelt arrays were successfully synthesized by hydrothermal reaction. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. The effects of the reaction conditions such as pH, V5+/Mn2+ ratio, carboxymethyl cellulose concentration and reaction time on the morphology of the products were studied. The band gap of the as-prepared products was calculated via diffuse reflectance spectral analysis and their activity of photocatalytic oxidation was evaluated by photodegradation of methylene blue under visible-light irradiation. The results showed that the degradation efficiency of methylene blue catalyzed by the calcinated products is remarkably enhanced due to Mn doping, suggesting that MnV2O6⋅V2O5 cross-like nanobelt arrays are a good candidate for visible-light-driven photocatalysts.
