- ... BACKGROUND: Iron (Fe)³⁺ has much a smaller ion radius than cerium (Ce)⁴⁺ but praseodymium (Pr) ions have a similar radius to Ce ions with the same valence. Hence, it is interesting to tune the structural properties, including lattice deformation, band gap and oxygen vacancy (Oᵥ), of CeO₂ by Pr and Fe codoping for enhanced visible‐light catalytic activity. RESULTS: A series of Ce₁‐ₓ‐yPrₓFeyO₂‐σ (x ...
