Abstract:Eu2+/Gd3+-codoped nanocrystalline titania catalysts were prepared by a modified sol-gel method. Powder X-ray diffraction, Transmission electron microscopy and UV-Vis spectra analyse were carried out to characterize the catalysts with different Eu2+/Gd3+contents.The photocatalytic efficiency was evaluated by the photodegradation of methyl orange in an aqueous solution under natural light irradiation. It has been confirmed that Eu2+/Gd3+-codoped titania could be excited by natural light. The higher natural light activity is due to the codoping of Eu2+/Gd3+. An optimum synergetic effect was found for a mass ratio of Eu/TiO2 equal to 1.0% and Gd/TiO2 equal to 0.5%. The effects induced by Eu2+/Gd3+-codoped on the titania catalysts may be explained in terms of Gd3+→Eu2+ energy transfer to affect the photocatalysis activity of the titania catalysts.

 

Key words: titania catalysts; codoping; synergetic effect
