Facile synthesis of novel Ag3PO4 tetrapods and the {110} facets-dominated photocatalytic activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly uniform silver orthophosphate microcrystals with novel tetrapod morphology are, for the first time, synthesized via a simple hydrothermal route with the assistance of urea. The effect of active crystal facets on the photocatalytic activity is principally investigated. The silver orthophosphate tetrapods exhibit significantly higher visible light activity than the polyhedrons for the degradation of toxic organic compounds due to the highly exposed {110} facets.
