Bi(2)WO(6) was successfully synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method, and characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and BET. As a result, Bi(2)WO(6) crystals displayed mainly square-plate-like morphologies with a short edge and the average crystalline size was in the range of 50-150 nm. Then microwave-assisted photocatalytic degradation of rhodamine B (RhB) using Bi(2)WO(6) was investigated. The results illustrated that RhB (10 mg/L) was bleached… CONTINUE READING
