Epub 2016 Dec 7.In this work, TiO2-coupled N-doped porous perovskite-type LaFeO3 nanocomposites as highly efficient, cheap, stable, and visible-light photocatalysts have successfully been prepared via wet chemical processes. It is shown that the amount-optimized nanocomposite exhibits exceptional visible-light photocatalytic activities for 2,4-dichlorophenol (2,4-DCP) degradation by ∼3-time enhancement and for CO2 conversion to fuels by ∼4-time enhancement, compared to the resulting porous LaFeO3 with rather high photoactivity due to its large surface area.
