Abstract: With pentahydrate bismuth nitrate (Bi(NO3)35H2O), potassium iodide (KI), and MIL-125(Ti) as raw materials, ethylene glycol as solvent, and citric acid as the structural inducer, heterojunction structure light catalyst MIL-125(Ti)/BiOI was prepared through one-step coprecipitation. The effect of photocatalytic degradation of Rhodamine B in visible light was also tested. By a series of measurements, including XRD, PL, SEM, BET and UV-Vis, we researched the relationships between structure, morphology, spectrum and the catalytic performance of the catalyst. Furthermore, the catalytic mechanism was analysized via energy band structure. The results indicated that by adjusting the ratio of Ti/Bi, MIL-125(Ti)/BiOI has a good degradation effect on Rhodamine B under visible light radiation, which is stable and can be applied to industrial applications.

Key words: MIL-125(Ti), BiOI, visible light, Rhodamine B, photocatalytic degradation
