Anionic-anionic (N-N, P-P, N-P, and C-S) mediated coupling can be introduced in the layered perovskite La2Ti2O7 structure for visible light photocatalysis. The anionic-anionic codoped La2Ti2O7 systems lower the band gap much more than their respective monodoping systems. Moreover, the electronic band positions of the doped systems with respect to the water oxidation/reduction potentials show that codoped (N-N, N-P, and C-S) systems are more promising candidates for visible-light photocatalysis. The calculated defect formation energy shows that the codoped systems are more stable than their respective monodoped systems.
