Solvothermal synthesis and photocatalytic properties of chromium-doped SrTiO3 nanoparticles

Applied Catalysis B: Environmental 105 (2011) 206–210

Single phase of Cr-doped SrTiO3 (SrTi1−xCrxO3, x = 0–0.2) nanoparticles (15–20 nm) were successfully synthesized by themicrowave assisted-solvothermal synthesis method in KOH methanol oleic acid solution. The small amount of chromium doping (x = 0.005) resulted in excellent visible light photocatalytic activity up to the wavelength of = 627nm (red light LED). The high photocatalytic activity in the visible region was caused by generating the new absorption in the visible region.
