Abstract

In this study, a facile method was used to prepare ZnO tetrapods for potential dye degradation applications. Field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and UV-Vis spectroscopy were employed to investigate the morphology, chemical composition, and photocatalytic properties of prepared ZnO tetrapods. A Rhodamine B (RB) dye was used as a model dye to study the photocatalytic activity of the prepared sample. It was shown that RB dye can be efficiently degraded in the presence of ZnO tetrapods under continuous UV-light illumination. Thus, prepared ZnO tetrapods with excellent photocatalytic properties can be potentially used in wastewater treatment.
