Supported silver nanoparticles as photocatalysts under ultraviolet and visible light irradiation

Author affiliations

Abstract

The significant activity for dye degradation by silver nanoparticles (NPs) on oxide supports was better than popular semiconductor photocatalysts. Moreover, silver photocatalysts can degrade phenol and drive oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde under ultraviolet light. We suggest that surface plasmon resonance (SPR) effect and interband transition of silver NPs can activate organic molecules for oxidation under ultraviolet and visible light irradiation.
