Abstract
Among conducting polymers, polyaniline (PANI) is one of the most widely used materials due to its unique properties (e.g., high electrical conductivity, outstanding electrochemical properties, easy polymerization, high stability, and low-cost synthesis). In this study, we report the synthesis of a composite of polyaniline with lead sulfide quantum dots (PbS QDs), which was subsequently employed for photocatalysis of a dye, rhodamine 6G (Rh-6G). This PANI/PbS composite was prepared by employing the chemical oxidative polymerization of aniline monomer in the presence of PbS QDs. The composite has been characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. The composite formation turned out to be beneficial not only for the dispersion of PbS QDs but also for increasing the conductivity of the whole catalyst. They exhibited similar to 87% degradation of the dye content for 50 min. The kinetic rate for its destruction is 5.03 mmol g(-1) h(-1) with the quantum efficiency (QE) of 7.98E-06 molec/photon. Due to enhanced charge transfer characteristics, the PANI/PbS photocatalyst was capable of efficiently degrading the dye molecules across varying concentrations. The electron-hole pair generated after the visible light irradiation on the PANI/PbS composite led to an efficient oxidative degradation of Rh 6G.
