Semiconductor photocatalysis technique is a ?green? method to completely eliminate most kinds of environmental contaminations. In the past years, the photocatalytic degradation of environmental organic pollutants has attracted extensive attention because of low-cost and nontoxic end products. The development of visible-light-driven (VLD) photocatalysts has been done by more and more researchers. Graphitic carbon nitrides (g-C3N4) are recognized as the most stable allotrope of carbon nitride and have an optical band gap of 2.7 eV. It can be synthesized from a simple precursor via a series of polycondensation reactions without any metal involvement. Due to its high nitrogen content and facile synthesis procedure, g-C3N4 may provide more active reaction sites than other N-carbon materials. CuO has been applied to improve the photocatalytic efficiency of some wide band gap semiconductors. The novel CuO-g-C3N4 composite photocatalyst was prepared. The aim was to further improve the VLD photocatalytic activity of CuO and g-C3N4. Also study the application of the prepared composite in photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants such as phenol and ortho-cresol.
