Controllable synthesis of conical BiVO4 for photocatalytic water oxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Conical morphologies with sharp tips exhibit excellent optical absorption and electric field enhancement features. We have synthesized conical structured BiVO4 crystals with a smooth curved surface and sharp tips by a simple two-phase route. The samples possess the ability to expand the visible light absorption region and are suitable for photocatalytic water oxidation.
