Photocatalytic functional materials have been considered a potentially effective way to address environmental and energy problems since they can directly convert abundant solar energy into usable energy resources, and produce hydroxyl group radicals capable of destroying pollutants and certain microbes in a given medium. Recently, Bi2MoO6/Ag3PO4 z-scheme is of particular interest because of its exceptional photocatalytic performance. In this study, we demonstrated that this material system satisfies the most requirements for efficient photocatalysts, such as high redox ability, narrow bandgap energy, and efficient charge-separation. It was also verified that light absorption and charge separation of the z-scheme photocatalysts were significantly affected by nanomaterials’ morphology, interface, and chemical composition. Bi2MoO6/Ag3PO4 composites with different morphologies have been synthesized and characterized in terms of physical, chemical and optical properties as well as photocatalytic performance under different light sources.
