Abstract:


Background: Bi2O2CO3 as a typical Aurivillius type bismuth-based layered structure photocatalyst material has received wide attention. It is very important to explore the improving strategy for Bi2O2CO3.

Methods: Herein, the preparation methods of Bi2O2CO3 and its application in environmental decontamination were summarized. Patents related to the subject were also reviewed. The modification methods for improving photocatalytic performance of Bi2O2CO3 were also analyzed, including morphology control, doping, fabricating of coupling semiconductors, carbon materials modification and others.

Results: Finally, the developments of challenges for the Bi2O2CO3-based photocatalyst were discussed.

Conclusion: Furthermore, the study on typical non-metallic oxyacid photocatalyst Bi2O2CO3 will provide fabricating high performance photocatalysts of the similar type for environmental decontamination.

Keywords:

Bi2O2CO3, photocatalytic, modification, aurivillius, environmental decontamination, doping.
