      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      The silver phosphate (Ag$_3$PO$_4$) sample was synthesized using Na$_3$PO$_4$, AgNO$_3$ and PEG-10000 as raw materials by the hydrothermal method. Its different morphologies were obtained by changing temperature and surfactant. And its structures and morphology were characterized by X-ray diffraction and field emission scanning electronmicroscopy. The result of the study indicated that after the heat treatment at 150$^{\circ}$C, the as-obtained Ag$_3$PO$_4$ polyhedral microcrystal’s diameter was about 4 $\mu$m. Meanwhile, it showed that using Ag$_3$PO$_4$ polyhedral microcrystals as photocatalysts, the photocatalytic degradation rate of methylene blue in aqueous solution was close to 98.5% after 25 min ofsunlight.
