Abstract
In this study, well-crystallized mesoporous anatase TiO2 microspheres were synthesized by simple hydrothermal reaction. These spheres are submicrometer-sized (the diameter size of about 1 to 3 μm) and consist of packed nanocrystallites with diameters of ~5 to 9nm. The products were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and UV-vis spectrophotometer. The 3D TiO2 microspheres exhibited significant photocatalytic degradation and photocatalytic activity was evaluated via the photocatalytic oxidation of Rhodamine B (RhB) in air at room temperature. The result also shows that mesoporous microspheres followed Langmuir-Hinshelwood (L-H) kinetic model.
