An Effect of Crucible Volume on the Microstructure and Photocatalytic Activity of the Prepared g-C3N4
In this present study, graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) was prepared via a thermal condensation of thiourea and characterized by several techniques, which confirmed that the morphology, absorption spectra and recombination of electron–hole pairs for the generated g-C3N4 particles were greatly influenced by the volume of alumina crucible. The prepared g-C3N4 particles were used as potential photocatalyst for the photocatalytic degradation of nitric oxide (NO). Interestingly, it was observed that the photocatalytic performance of the synthesized g-C3N4, prepared under different alumina crucible volume, were different. The detailed photocatalytic investigations revealed that the photocatalytic performance of g-C3N4 prepared using 50 mL crucible exhibited the highest removal efficiency of NO. The detailed experiments indicated that the crucible volume had an important impact on the synthesis and photocatalytic properties of prepared g-C3N4 materials.
