AbstractHighly crystallized single crystal Bi4Ti3O12 nanosheets with dominant {001} facets were synthesized by heating a stoichiometric composition of alpha-Bi2O3 and TiO2 in molten NaCI KCl at 800 C for 2 h. Effects of the amount of the added molten salts (their mole ratio (M) to nominal Bi4Ti3O12 varied from 4 to 60 and the samples were denoted as BTO-M) on the size distribution and photoactivity of the resulting products were systematically evaluated. The side length of as-prepared Bi4Ti3O12 gradually decreases by increasing the addition of molten salts, and the minimal side length is achieved in the sample BTO-50. As a result, the sample BTO-50 shows the best photocatalytic kinetics in photodegradation of rhodamine B (RhB) under visible-light irradiation, which is about 8.65 times faster than that of the sample BTO-0 obtained by a traditional solid-state reaction method, demonstrating the superiority of the present molten salts synthesis for bismuth titanate. The improved photocatalytic kinetics of BTO-M is a concert of several factors including the highly faceted surfaces, thin flakes that shorten the charge transport distance to the surface, as well as the internal electric fields produced by the spontaneous polarization in the BTO-50 sample that facilitate the separation of photoinduced charges as evidenced by Kelvin probe force microscopy. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy further reveals that under visible-light, the electron transfer resistance of the BTO-50 decreases to nearly 50% of that of the BTO-0 sample.
