- In this work, a two-component modified AgBr–Br–g-C₃N₄ composite catalyst with outstanding photocatalytic H₂O₂ production ability is synthesized. XRD, UV-Vis, N₂ adsorption, TEM, XPS, EPR and PL were used to characterize the obtained catalysts. The as-prepared AgBr–Br–g-C₃N₄ composite catalyst shows the highest H₂O₂ equilibrium concentration of 3.9 mmol L⁻¹, which is 7.8 and 19.5 times higher than that of GCN and AgBr. A “two channel pathway” is proposed for this reaction system which causes the remarkably promoted H₂O₂ production ability. In addition, compared with another two-component modified catalyst, Ag–AgBr–g-C₃N₄, AgBr–Br–g-C₃N₄ composite catalyst displays the higher photocatalytic H₂O₂ production ability and stability.
