Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Tantalum nitride (Ta3N5) nanoparticles as a visible light photocatalytst were prepared by nitriding the amorphous tantalum nitride naoparticles under ammonia atmosphere at 1073 K. The production of well-crystallized Ta3N5 nanoparticles have primary particles 40-60 nm in size and a broad absorption band in the vicinity of 600 nm. The as-synthesized materials exhibit good activity for H2 and 02 evolution from pure water under visible light irradiation (γ≥420cm).
