3D flower-like nickel phosphide (Ni12P5) microstructures were successfully synthesized by a facile solvothermal route. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM) images showed that the as-prepared Ni12P5 microstructures had a tetragonal phase and were composed of a large quantity of flower-like structures. Based on a series of the timedependent experiments, the formation mechanism of Ni12P5 flower-like microstructures were discussed. It was found that the as-prepared flower-like are assembled by many spherical particles. Furthermore, research also showed that the as-prepared flower-like Ni12P5 microstructures possess excellent photocatalytic activity and could photocatalytically degrade some typical organic dyes such as Safranine T, Methylene Blue, Methyl Orange and Rhodamine B under the irradiation of UV light.
