Abstract

In this work, a metal-organic framework (MOF) material of NH2-MIL88B was hybridized with TpPa-1-COF through covalent bonding, and the hybrid was subsequently employed for the degradation of Rhodamine B (RhB) and tetracycline (TC) by simulated sunlight-induced Fenton-like exciting H2O2. The obtained results show that its photocatalytic activity is much better than those of its parent MOF and covalent organic framework (COF). Moreover, it is much higher than that of bare photocatalysis without Fenton-like excitation of H2O2. The high degradation efficiency is ascribed to two factors. One is the formation of hybrid, which promotes charge separation and light absorbance. Another is the Fenton-like excitation of H2O2, which produces more hydroxyl radicals (OH). This report presents a facile approach to greatly improve the photocatalytic property of MOF materials by the formation of hybrid with COFs and Fenton-like excitation of H2O2. © 2021 American Chemical Society.
