Abstract: a green approach was developed to fabricate a carbon doped ZnO/ZnCo2O4 photocatalyst for degrading organic dye under visible light. The as-prepared sample had fibrous morphology and exhibited exceptionally photocatalytic activities in degrading methylene blue. The enhanced photocatalytic performance was owing to the high porosity, effective charge separation, and the photo synergetic effect between ZnCo2O4 and ZnO of the product.
Keywords: photocatalysis; biotemplate; dye degradation.
