      Modification of Metal Free Organic Semiconductor Graphitic Carbon Nitride
Photocatalyst by Codoped with Diamide
M. Jeba Jeeva Rani, G. Allen Gnana Raj*
Novel diamide metal free graphitic carbon nitride (CNO-g-C3N4) composite photocatalyst was synthesized by “in situ” chemical polymerization of urea. The resulting CNO-g-C3N4 composite photocatalyst was characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The photocatalytic activities of the novel photocatalyst were evaluated using Rhodamine-B as a target pollutant. The CNO-g-C3N4 composite exhibit obviously enhanced photocatalytic performance than pure g-C3N4 under visible light irradiation.

Key words:  Metal free composite, Photocatalyst, Graphitic carbon nitride, Conducting polymer, Dyedegradation, Diamide.
