Abstract: 

A series of visible light sensitive photocatalysts of Fe2O3/ZnO composites with different Fe2O3 contents (25, 50, and 75wt%) were successfully prepared by a solution combustion method. The material structure and morphology of photocatalysts and their optical properties have been examined using X-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), photoluminescence (PL) spectra, and diffuse reflectance UV–visible spectroscopy. The characterization results showed that the morphology, crystallite size, and optical properties of Fe2O3/ZnO composites varied significantly with the Fe2O3 contents. The as-synthesized photocatalysts were used for direct photocatalytic conversion of greenhouse gases (CO2 and CH4) in a batch photoreactor, under visible light irradiation. The highest rates of photocatalytic conversion of CO2 and CH4 by Fe2O3/ZnO nanocomposite were 16% and 21% respectively.
