Abstract

Cu-doped LaFeO3 was prepared by a facile hydrothermal reaction and evaluated as highly efficient photo-Fenton-like catalyst under visible light for organic degradation. The use of LFO-15Cu (LaFe0.85Cu0.15O3), which possessed favourable physicochemical characteristics, could achieve almost complete decolourisation of cation and anion dyes within 60 min visible light irradiation. The mechanism study by ESR spectroscopy confirmed LFO-15Cu could activate H2O2 under visible light to generate many more hydroxyl radicals than LFO (LaFeO3). LFO-15Cu was proven with excellent stability and reusability; and in turn showed great potential for use in continuous photo-Fenton-like degradation of organic in water under visible light.
