Abstract

Tailor-made heterostructural nanoform based on multiple low-dimensional frameworks not only offers manifold functionalities also bestows several novel interface phenomena. From the broad usage window of heterostructures, photocatalysis is very significant nowadays. In this work, we have realized oxide-based hybrid comprising 1D TiO2–ZnO nanoform on flexible carbon cloth via facile chemical approach. Successful presentation of the hybrid over foldable platform was established via FESEM which discloses its typical morphology. To attain a clear insight of the elemental composition EDX analysis and elemental mapping of the hybrid was also carried out. Catalytic activity of the synthesized samples under UV light illumination was inspected taking Rhodamine B as the model contaminant where the heterostructure exhibited much-improved performance as compared to the individual structural building block. Prolonged separation time of the photogenerated charge carriers in heterostructure ensures enhanced photocatalytic activity. Such work on morphology-induced catalytic performance enhancement will inspire the researchers toward creative designing of different photocatalyst comprising other multifunctional oxides.
