Enhanced Visible Light Active WO3 Thin Films Toward Air Purification: Effect of the Synthesis Conditions

Abstrakt

Taking into consideration, our current environmental situation in the world people should face with growing problem of air and water pollution. Heterogeneous photocatalysis is highly promising tool to improve both, air and water quality through decomposition/mineralization of contaminations directly into harmless CO2 and H2O under ambient conditions. In this contribution we focused on the synthesis of self-assembly WO3 thin films via an electrochemical approach in the aqueous electrolyte containing fluoride ions towards air purifications. The effect of preparation conditions such as applied potential (10 – 50 V), anodization time (15 – 120 minutes), concentration of H2SO4 (0.5 – 1.5 M) and NaF (0.1 – 1.0 wt.%) on the morphology, photocurrent response and photocatalytic activity addressed to removal of air pollutant in the presence of as-prepared WO3 samples were thoroughly examined and presented. The results revealed the growth of nanoplatelets and their gradual transformation into flower-like structure. The oxide layers and platelets thickness of the WO3 samples were found to be proportionally related with the synthesis conditions. The photocatalytic ability towards air purification was evaluated by degradation of toluene from air mixture using low-powered LEDs as an irradiation source (λmax = 415 nm). The highest photoactivity was achieved in presence of the sample which possessed well-ordered, regular shape and repeatable distribution of flower buds (100% of degradation). The results have confirmed that the oxide layer thickness of the anodic WO3 significantly affected the photocatalytic activity, which increased with the increasing thickness of WO3 (to 1.05 μm) and then had a down trend. The photocurrent response evidenced that well-organized sample had the highest ability in photocurrent generation under UV-Vis and Vis irradiation. Finally, a possible growth mechanism of WO3 NFs was also discussed.
