Synthesis of faceted β-SnWO4 microcrystals with enhanced visible-light photocatalytic properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly crystalline β-SnWO4 truncated rhombic dodecahedrons with sharp edges and smooth faces are prepared via a wet-chemical route. The compound exhibits a much higher photocatalytic activity than spherical β-SnWO4 nanoparticles or conventionally prepared bulk β-SnWO4 as well as faceted microcrystals of m-BiVO4 and Ag3PO4.
