Abstract [en]

A facile approach for the fabrication of Au-decorated mesoporous Fe3O4@TiO2 (Fe3O4@mTiO(2)) core-shell microspheres is demonstrated. The protocol involved the coating of a successive layer of TiO2 onto a magnetic Fe3O4 core via a sol-gel process, followed by TiO2 crystallization and mesopore-formation by a hydrothermal treatment, and then the deposition of Au nanoparticles onto Fe3O4@mTiO(2) microspheres through an in situ reduction of perchloric acid. The mesoporous microspheres (Fe3O4@mTiO(2)) showed stronger magnetic properties than the dense sample (Fe3O4@TiO2) before the hydrothermal treatment. The size and loading amount of Au nanoparticles were controlled by the reduction temperature and concentration of Au salt, respectively. Compared to unmodified Fe3O4@mTiO(2) microspheres, Fe3O4@mTiO(2)@Au microspheres showed higher photocatalytic activity for organic degradation and antibacterial action in water. These core-shell Fe3O4@mTiO(2)@Au microspheres can serve as efficient and recyclable photocatalysts, which have promising applications in environmental treatment.
