    Abstract

    A natural mineral attapulgite was employed as a carrier of TiO2-xNy nanopaticles photocatalytst. The attapulgite/TiO2-xNy composites were prepared by soft grinding after hydrothermal synthesis of TiO2-xNy nanoparticles at 250°C for 10 min. The photocatalytic activities of the samples were evaluated for the oxidative destruction of NO. The composites showed excellent photocatalytic activity under both UV and visible light irradiation, where attapulgite/70 wt.% TiO2-xNy composites showed the best performance for NO destruction.
