AgIO3/Ag2O/Ag nanocomposites with enhanced photocatalytic activities were synthesized by a onestep coprecipitation method at room temperature. The optimum hybrid of AgIO3/Ag2O = 1.25:1 with Ag nanoparticles (Ag NPs) loading (denoted as AA125) exhibited superior photocatalytic activity, demonstrating 97.19% tetracycline (TC) degradation within 60 min under simulated solar irradiation. This was approximately 10.44 and 2.63 times higher than that of pure Ag2O and AgIO3, respectively. The advanced photocatalytic activity can be ascribed to the synergetic effects of the heterostructured AgIO3/Ag2O/Ag and the strong surface plasmon resonance (SPR) effect of Ag NPs generated on the surface, which improved the separation and transfer efficiency of photoinduced electron–hole pairs. The results from radical scavenger experiments indicated that the degradation of TC was driven mainly by the participation of superoxide radical (·O- 2).
