AbstractThere is a huge demand for ammonia worldwide due to its extensive utilization in various technical applications. However, its production is still dependent on the traditional Haber-Bosch process under high temperature and pressure, which has enormous pressure on both the world energy supply and global warming issue. In this work, bismuth molybdate nanosheets rich in oxygen vacancies were created via NaOH treatment of bismuth molybdate nanosheets by a simple, robust and cost-effective process of NaOH etching treatment at room temperature to boost the photocatalytic nitrogen fixation to produce ammonia under visible light illumination at room temperature and ambient pressure. It was found that rich oxygen vacancies largely improved both the photo generated charge carrier separation and N-2 adsorption/activation capabilities of bismuth molybdate nanosheets. Thus, an enhanced, stable photocatalytic N-2 fixation performance with a superior average ammonia production rate of near 800 mu mol.g(-1).h(-1) was achieved under visible light illumination in repeated uses. Even better photocatalytic N-2 fixation performance was observed under simulated solar illumination. The photocatalyst showed good tolerance to oxygen, allowing the use of air rather pure N-2 in the reaction. Thus, it is promising for ammonia production from the photocatalytic N-2 fixation with solar energy by these bismuth molybdate nano sheets with rich oxygen vacancies, which could provide a greener and more sustainable alternative than the traditional Haber-Bosch process.
