Abstract

For the global environmental problem, development of sustainable photocatalysts possess major scientific challenge. In this context, we developed a series of Zn1-xCuxO (x = 0.01, 0.02, 0.03, 0.04) nanocatalysts (via co-precipitation method) for photocatalytic abatement of Bisphenol-A from the water. As-prepared photocatalysts characterized by using various physicochemical techniques like PXRD, XPS, TEM, UV-VIS-DRS and PL spectroscopy. Notably, among all photocatalysts Zn0.99Cu0.01O furnished the better activity under visible light and observed 74% of abatement with rate constant 0.0076 min−1 and 66% of mineralization.
